Anne’s research seeks to understand how climate controls ecosystem growth, water use, and composition.  Climate change is beginning to impact ecosystems worldwide, and understanding the interactions between climate and ecosystem properties is critical to predicting future patterns of forest mortality, species migration, carbon cycling, and water cycling worldwide. She works with California governmental and non-profit organizations to translate her research results into a useful basis for policy decisions. Anne enjoys backpacking around the southwest and making botanical trail guides for Southern California hikes.
