Tree Physiology in Arid Climates: Adaptations to Stormwater Surges and Persistent Drought with Dr. William Pockman

Dr. Pockman is Professor and Chair of the UNM Biology Department. He received his BA from Oberlin College and his Ph.D. from the University of Utah. His lab group studies plant physiological and ecosystem ecology, with particular emphasis on the role of water uptake and transport on transpiration and photosynthesis, drought and freezing tolerance, and their influence on species distributions and climate change responses from individuals to ecosystems.
