Fusing data and models to understand tropical forest response to moisture from trees to the ecosystem
April 10, 2018 • 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Dept. of Ecosystem Science and Management (ESSM) Seminar
Presented by Dr. Brad Christoffersen, University of Texas Rio Grande Valley
Brad Christoffersen is an Assistant Professor in Biology and the School of Earth, Environmental, and Marine Sciences at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV). He has worked extensively in tropical forests, and his work bridges both empirical and modeling approaches with a focus on understanding ecophysiological responses to moisture across scales, both above- and below-ground. His research program at UTRGV continues the work in tropical forests while expanding field sites to include the native and managed ecosystems of south Texas, in the context of understanding controls over water cycling in these systems.
Snacks and beverages will be provided. Please join us afterwards for a social gathering at 5:30 p.m. at Blackwater Draw in Northgate.
