"Global environmental change & the terrestrial biosphere: linking plant traits with community and ecosystem dynamics"
Dr. Reich's research focuses on the impacts of global environmental change on terrestrial ecosystems. This includes effects of climate change, elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide, other air pollutants, land use/management, fire and biotic invasion on health, biodiversity, and sustainability of forest and grassland ecosystems both in Minnesota and globally. His work simultaneously attempts to bridge the fields of physiological, community, ecosystem, landscape, and global ecology.
