Ecosystem Ecology, Biogeochemistry, Global Change
The Templer Lab focuses on the effects of environmental change, including climate change, atmospheric deposition, and urbanization on biogeochemical cycling of carbon and nitrogen in natural and managed ecosystems. We explore how plant-microbial interactions influence carbon exchange, nitrogen retention, forest productivity, and water and air quality. We have projects in temperate forests of the northeastern United States, redwood forests of California, and tropical forests of Puerto Rico, Mexico, and New Guinea.
I welcome the participation of students in the lab and will accept graduate students for the fall 2017 semester. Please notify me if you are interested in working in the lab as a high school student, undergraduate, graduate student, postdoc, or visiting scientist.
