Research in our laboratory focuses on the plant-soil interface and how abiotic and biotic factors interact to shape ecosystem structure and function.

2014: The lab has moved, in part, to the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. We are not accepting MS/PhD students at UTK.

  1. BulletWanna know more about C, roots, and mycorrhizae? Read the new paper by Moore et al. in Journal of Ecology. It’s part of an excellent special issue on fresh perspectives on how plants affect biogeochemical cycling

  2. BulletAimee was awarded the Association for Women Soil Scientists (AWSS), 2015 AWSS Mentoring Award for mentoring women in soil science.

  3. BulletMaja’s paper on decomposition and home field advantage is out in Functional Ecology. Great read.

  4. BulletWe’ve had a great group of new undergraduate researchers join the lab working on roots, mycorrhizae & carbon.

  5. Bullet10/2015 Kenna is here working for a few weeks, Sonamkyi just arrived to work with us for a year, and Daan was recently funded to work on the WSR project.
