Dr. Grimm’s research concerns the structure and function of ecosystems in arid lands. Her current research focuses on nitrogen cycling and retention in fragmented habitats. Current projects in Dr. Grimm’s research group are 1) plant-microbe-soil interactions and nitrogen transformations in a riparian ecosystem (San Pedro River, AZ); 2) nitrate retention in urban, agricultural, and unmodified streams of the American Southwest; 3) biogeochemistry and hot spots of nitrogen transformation in urban landscapes; and 4) effects of urban atmospheric deposition on biogeochemical cycling in deserts.
