Bio/Research

The potential impact of carbon dioxide and climate change on natural and managed ecosystems has been an important part of my research program since the early 1990s. Soil health, and nitrogen and water management are other major areas of research. My activities range from basic plant and soil research, to development of climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies for land managers, to conservation agriculture projects in developing countries. I often collaborate with colleagues in other disciplines such as soil microbiology, biogeochemistry, and resource economics. Current research projects include: (1) new low-cost approaches for soil carbon assessment; (2) new tools and incentives for greenhouse gas accounting and management in agroecosystems; (3) new decision tools for farmers for strategic adaptation to climate change; (4) new biological indicators of soil health.
