δ13C of soluble sugars in Tillandsia epiphytes vary in response to shifts in habitat.
Oecologia, Physiological ecology section, 2010.
I met Laurel at SIRFER 2008 where we enjoyed a wide range of stable isotope lectures and lab experience. She first used my software, SISUS, to estimate the proportion of C3 vs CAM photosynthesis of epiphytes. Our work and friendship led to the collaboration where we thought about and developed a model for the environmental factors affecting the phothsynthetic pathways of the species studied. Read more…
