Catherine Dieleman, PhD

Ecosystem Ecologist


Working as part of an integrative research team I ask foundational questions in ecosystem resilience theory by exploring core linkages in boreal ecosystem structure and function as well as their responses to disturbance. My wholistic approach characterizes changes in carbon, nutrients, and energy flows through vegetation, microbes, soils, and the atmosphere from the plot to the pan-regional level. My international research program latitudinally spans the North American boreal, ranging across Alaska, USA, Northwest Territories, Canada and Saskatchewan, Canada, to consider how the mechanistic relationships we find vary through space and time.
