Ecosystem Ecology – K Rousk Lab

In the Ecosystem Ecology Lab, we are interested in the abiotic and biotic controls of nitrogen (N) fixation in moss-cyanobacteria associations. This ecosystem function is especially important in pristine ecosystems like boreal forests, subarctic tundra and tropical cloud forests. Cyanobacteria colonizing dominant moss species in these habitats contribute fundamentally to the ecosystem N pool. We conduct experiments in the laboratory and in the field, especially in the boreal and tropical biomes.
