    Departmental Research Areas:

    Research focus:

    • Studying the effect of vegetation on decomposition of organic matter and greenhouse gas production and oxidation.
    • Aquatic food webs to study the trophic interactions between microbial functional groups in Florida Everglades.
    • Characterization of microbial communities associated with the early development of soils in a calcareous wetland soil using phospholipids fatty acid analysis.
    • Biogeochemical succession in early development of soils using nutrient and soil enzyme analysis.
    • Investigation of biogeochemical, physical and biological mechanisms that influence the phosphatase production in the periphyton mats.
    • Linking structure and functions in periphyton mats by using enzyme labeled fluorescent (ELF) substrate and fluorescence microscopy.
