Chun-Ta Lai

Associate Professor


I am an ecosystem ecologist specializing in biogeochemical cycling of carbon and water in terrestrial ecosystems. My lab uses stable isotope ratio and meteorological techniques to measure, and models to integrate information regarding variations of water and carbon transfer from leaf to regional scales.

Two research questions broadly define my focus areas:

1. What are the mechanisms that control biogeochemical fluxes? How will such drivers be modified by anthropogenic perturbation?

2. In what means can large-scale ecological changes be detected and examined over time scales greater than decades?
