My name is Joseph Stinziano, and I am a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Western Ontario in Canada. For my dissertation, I am studying the effects of climate change on on tree species, using ecophysiological techniques and mathematical modelling. At the moment, I am a Fulbright Visiting Researcher at the University of New Mexico, studying the underpinnings of photosynthetic gas exchange theory.

Drying out defenses: drought reduces tree defense system

Drought stress is becoming increasingly common with climate change, with negative impacts on tree growth and survival. The mechanisms of drought mortality in trees...

Waring out the carbon: is net primary productivity proportional to gross primary productivity?

Gross primary productivity represents the total carbon fixed through photosynthesis in an ecosystem. Since plants also breakdown sugars produced through photosynthesis, releasing carbon and...

A tome for the phloem: Tree Physiology’s Special Issue on Phloem

Phloem is a crucial tissue in trees, responsible for transporting carbon and cycling of nutrients throughout the plant. However, there is comparatively little information...

To drink, or not to drink – do trees coordinate their water supply with environmental conditions?

Predicting future responses of trees to drought is notoriously difficult, requiring consideration of many factors, including temperature, soil type, and how trees regulate their...

Waking up to respiration: leaf respiration in the light alters our interpretation of ecosystem carbon fluxes

In plants, respiration is usually inhibited in the light compared to the dark. Measuring respiration in the light is particularly difficult, because photosynthesis and...

Fueling the fire – how is stem growth respiration linked to stem growth?

Understanding how forests grow and how they metabolize carbon is crucial to ecosystem carbon flux, feedbacks between vegetation and climate, and the forestry. However,...

Trading food for water – trees exude more carbon under drought stress

Plants secrete carbon compounds into soils through their roots, affecting microbes in such a way that nutrient availability in the soil can increase. This...

Pining for resistance: a new way to assess pine susceptibility to fungal diseases

McAllister et al. demonstrate the utility of rh-qPCR to quantify ophiostomoid fungi in situ from MPB and pine DNA extracts

Mistletoe-ing around the tree reduces growth in forests

It might seem romantic, but the last thing a tree wants is an embrace under mistletoe.

Bamboosting growth: why does bamboo grow so fast?

What is it that gives bamboo its rapid growth? One team has been looking for the answer not with the fastest plants, but with the slower variants to see what they lack.
