Dr. Bruce Dudley from National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, NIWA, New Zealand is
visiting University of Oulu. He will give two lectures on following subjects:

  • Measuring plant water use with sap flow techniques - some lessons from the field
  • Utilization of stable isotope ratios (δ18O, δ2H, δ15N, δ13C) in vegetation transpiration and nutrient usage studies.

After the lecture there will demonstration of sapflow measurement techniques from trees.

The lectures will take place on Tuesday, 2nd of May from 10:15 to 12:00 in Tellus Stage.

You are warmly welcome to listen the lectures!

 

Bruce’s main areas of expertise are in coastal nutrient cycles, and stable isotope applications in hydrology and biogeochemistry. He currently works at the New Zealand National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) in as a hydrologist. He completed a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. in biological sciences at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and a Ph.D. in marine science at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. His post-doctoral fellowship was with the University of Hawaii at Hilo and the United States Forest Service, examining changes to nutrient and hydrologic cycles resulting from invasion of an N-fixing tree to Hawaii Island.
