Experimental and theoretical studies on the physical, biological and chemical control of trace gas exchange between vegetation and the atmosphere. Recent focus has been on the study of carbon dioxide, water vapor and isoprene exchange above and below forest and crop canopies using the micrometeorological measurement methods and leaf to canopy scaling models. Lines of inquiry have been along quantifying structural and functional complexity of vegetation and understanding how fluxes vary along a spectrum of time and space scales.
