In the von Fischer lab, we are interested in the question:

How does the physical environment
affect the ecology of plants and soil microbes?


We study this general question through individual research projects that work to better understand:

How strong is the feedback between global change and methane emissions?

Does microbial ecology matter for the biogeochemistry of methane uptake in upland soils?

How does the temperature and rainfall regime affect plant and microbial ecology in grasslands?
