Knute Nadelhoffer is interested in ecological and biogeochemical processes that determine ecosystem structure and functioning at local, regional and global levels. He conducts field studies in temperate forest and arctic tundra ecosystems aimed at developing mechanistic understandings of how ecosystems respond to climate change, air pollution and physical disturbance. He is particularly interested in how interactions among soil biota, plants and climate interact to determine ecosystem structure and stability.
