General research themes include:

  • Ecophysiology and stress physiology of plants 
  • Soil-plant interactions
  • Functional ecology of biological soil crusts / biocrusts
  • Linking ecophysiology and ecosystem processes for understanding tree-crop interactions
  • Effects of microclimate on plants and microhabitats
  • Synthesis of long-term data from sensor networks
  • Ecology of arid and semi-arid systems
  • Reclamation ecology and ecosystem development
