Fall 2014


Research in the Simonin lab embraces the idea that understanding plant physiological controls over carbon, water and nutrient transport between soils, plants and the atmosphere are of critical importance for understanding how natural and human reconfigured ecosystems respond to a changing climate.  A general theme in the lab is the use of biophysical models that describe the coordination between plant water loss and carbon gain in order to assess the impact of atmospheric CO2 concentrations, temperature, water and nutrient availability, on plant productivity and ecosystem hydrology.
