Dr, Holly Barnard's research is focused on investigating how vegetation
processes affect water flow dynamics and pathways in soil and streams,
and conversely, how water flow paths affect vegetation function in
mountainous terrain. The ultimate goal is to improve our knowledge of
how changes in land-use and/or climate will affect water resources and
ecosystems. This interdisciplinary research uses state-of-the-art
techniques to reveal patterns and processes at scales ranging from the
leaf to the watershed.
