Leland is interested in restoration of tropical dry forests. He is currently planning a number of experiments to design restoration treatments for degraded vertisols based on plant functional traits. He also uses drones to study bears, restoration, and tree mortality. Read more about Leland here.
Christina is studying the ecology and physiology of lianas in tropical forests.
German is studying the physiological mechanisms through which trees respond to increased drought and nutrient availability.
Dr. Maga Gei
Maga worked on the factors that affect nitrogen fixation in tropical legume tree species. She currently is doing a postdoc in the lab, aimed at understanding biogeographical patterns of legume abundance in tropical forests.
Dr. Kara Allen
Kara received her PhD in Goettingen, Germany. She has lots of experience working in Asian tropical forests.
Dr. Mark De Guzman
Mark just joined the lab after his PhD in plant physiological ecology from UC Riverside.
