Welcome to the Turetsky Lab Website
We are ecologists that study carbon, nutrient and energy cycling within ecosystem and resiliency frameworks. Our research occurs primarily in the Arctic and Boreal regions of Alaska and northwestern Canada, where wetlands and permafrost forests are extensive and store massive reservoirs of soil carbon. Currently, we are conducting several projects that examine the implications of climate change and climate-mediated disturbances such as wildfire and permafrost thaw on plant communities, ecosystem carbon and nutrient cycling, and greenhouse gas fluxes. Our work tends to integrate across ecology, evolution, hydrology, geology, and chemistry.
