Bio(s): The Mozdzer Ecology lab uses an interdisciplinary approach, combining plant ecophysiology, biogeochemistry, and population genetics to better understand how wetland ecosystems may respond to global change. Currently, Professor Mozdzer is investigating the effects of global change on Phragmites australis invasion in an ecosystem level study at the Smithsonian Global Change Research Wetland. He is interested in understanding how the process of invasion may change with predicted levels of atmospheric CO2 and anthropogenic nitrogen pollution, along with the role of intraspecific genetic diversity in plant invasion. He is also collaborating with colleagues at MBL, the University of Massachusetts-Boston, Boston University, and the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center to understand the effects of chronic nutrient pollution in plant communities in the TIDE project. He has broad interests in plant ecophysiology, biogeochemistry, and is also very interested in understanding the impacts of plant invasion on ecosystem carbon cycling and greenhouse gas emissions.
