About the contributor

Greg Barron-Gafford

Assistant Professor, Biosphere 2 and School of Geography and Development at the University of Arizona and Adjunct Faculty, School of Natural Resources & the Environment at the University of Arizona. He received his B.S. in Environmental Sciences from Texas Christian University before earning his M.S. in Forest Ecology from the University of Georgia and a Ph.D. in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology from the University of Arizona. His research is centered on developing our understanding of semiarid ecosystem responses and adaptation to climatic changes, such as increased temperature and reduced precipitation. The Barron-Gafford research group studies the interactive effects of vegetation and climate change on plant & ecosystem function to inform forecasting and decision makers. They tackle questions related to fields of Biogeography, Plant Ecophysiology, Ecosystem Ecology, Ecohydrology, and Critical Zone Science. Helping develop science-based solutions to help people adapt to the increasing pressures that come from a changing climate is his personal and professional goal.
