Working across a range of ecosystems from lowland Neotropical and high elevation conifer forests to semi-arid grasslands, our research group uses a combination of ecological experiments, microbiological techniques, and contemporary genetic and metagenomic tools to develop hypotheses to test the effects of plant-microbe interactions on plant community richness and species abundance, understand how environmental shifts will alter these interactions, and accurately predict the subsequent impacts on ecosystem function.
