The Ecohydrology Laboratory is a sub-unit of Terrestrial Ecosystems Analysis Lab that focuses on understanding the interactions and feedbacks that occur at the interface between ecological and hydrological systems, with an emphasis on the water cycle and the linkages between coupled water, nutrient and carbon cycles.

A particular emphasis of on-going research in the Ecohydrology Lab is to explore the role of vegetation in controlling water fluxes and flowpaths from individual leaves and whole plants to ecosystems, watersheds, and landscapes, as well as how these processes are affected by land use conversion, climate change, and other global change drivers. 

Ultimately, results from this research are contributing to providing the scientific knowledge needed to improve the management of ecosystems for diverse services to society, including water quality, regulation of water supply, carbon sequestration and storage, and biodiversity.
