- Plant physiological adjustments to prevailing environmental conditions and the implications these adjustments have on species interactions, community dynamics, restoration efforts and our ability to predict plant response to global change.
- Physiological determinants of plant growth responses to global change factors such as elevated atmospheric CO2, increased N availability, reduced precipitation and species richness (http://www.biocon.umn.edu/).
