Hugh Henry, PhD
Plant ecology, biogeochemistry and global change biology
I am a terrestrial plant ecologist with interests in biogeochemistry, community ecology, physiological plant ecology and global change ecology. I use field experimentation, laboratory methods and theoretical modeling to explore questions ranging from resource acquisition by individual plants to species responses at the community level and nutrient cycling at the ecosystem level. I am particularly interested in exploring how plants and microorganisms interact to regulate nutrient cycling in natural systems.
