Carbon Cycle Science | Urbanization | Global Change | Ecosystem Ecology

photosThe Hutyra Research Lab explores how landscape characteristics and transformations affect ecosystem functioning and the cycling of carbon through the biosphere and the atmosphere. My research thrusts focus on investigating terrestrial carbon dynamics in forest systems (both temperate and tropical) and urbanizing areas, particularly focusing on the carbon consequences of land use and land cover change.
