Welcome

The Moore Ecohydrology Lab

Moore College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Texas A&M University

NOTE: WE HAVE MOVED!!! THE LAB IS NOW LOCATED IN HFSB 128.

The Moore Lab seeks to understand how ecosystem management relates to the water cycle – by changing vegetation type, amount, and structure. Distinctly interdiciplinary, our research in the field of ecohydrology is driven by science questions, spans many types of ecosystems, and utilizes a variety of measurement tools.

What Is Ecohydrology?

Ecohydrology is the study of how vegetation affects the water cycle, and how the water cycle affects ecosystems. Human-induced land use changes (the former) are the primary focus of my current research program; however, my goal in the next five years is to expand my research program to include how altered river flows affects riparian ecosystems (the later), bringing the plant-water connection full circle.

Recent Work

  • Tropical forests whose productivity may be impacted by wet leaf conditions
  • Texas ecosystems experiencing tree mortality from drought
  • Forests that have experienced stand-replacing wildfires
  • Rangelands subject to enroachment by woody plants
  • Floodplains invaded by non-native species
