Global Change Biology & Terrestrial Systems Science

Educational Background: 
  • B.S., 1980, Forest Management, University of Florida
  • Ph.D., 1993, Forest Science, Oregon State University
Research Interests: 
Ecosystem processes, including carbon and water cycling (e.g. photosynthesis, transpiration by trees and shrubs, autotrophic and heterotrophic respiration) as influenced by climate and disturbance; processes contributing to whole ecosystem CO2 and water vapor exchange measured by the eddy covariance method; remote sensing of canopy structure; modeling ecosystem processes in response to climate and disturbance. For an overview of my research projects, go to http://terraweb.forestry.oregonstate.edu/
Current/Recent Programs: 

Research to investigate the influence of climate, developmental stage, and management on ecosystem processes contributing to carbon, water and energy exchange by forests; landscape to regional assessment of terrestrial carbon balance using a combination of field measurements, remote sensing, and process modeling (CLM, 3PGS, SPA).
