Kevin L. Griffin

I am a plant physiological ecologist interested in the biochemical, physiological and ecological mechanisms plants and ecosystems use to respond to environmental variation and climate change. I am the lead Pi of the Arctic - Long Term Ecological Research program. This project has been studying the ecosystem ecology Tundra in Northern Alaska for nearly 40 years. Other research projects include studies of tree growth in NY, The ecology of Northern treelines, The temperature response of symbiotic nitrogen fixation and the impact of light and temperature on leaf respiration. I have worldwide collaborations with scientists from Australia, Brazil, Chile, China, Denmark, New Zeeland and Vietnam where we have conducted research in a variety of forests and other ecosystems. Ultimately, I strive to increase our understanding of both the role of the Earth's vegetation in the global carbon cycle and the interactions between the carbon cycle and the Earth's climate system.
