Welcome to our lab! We study plant physiological and ecosystem ecology with an emphasis on the role of plants and soils in human-dominated and urban ecosystems. Our goal is to quantify the environmental costs and benefits of planting, restoring, and managing landscapes in urban areas and at the urban-wildland interface to inform choices about urban and landscape planning and design.

Please note that our lab is moving to the University of Utah on July 1, 2012. For more information follow the links above.
