Professor Elise Pendall

Professor Elise Pendall is a soil and ecosystem ecologist who investigates the responses of biogeochemical cycling to climate change and ecological disturbances. She spent 11 years on the faculty of the University of Wyoming, and came to HIE in 2014, where she leads the Soil Biology and Genomics theme and teaches the Master's unit "Ecosystems in a Changing World."

Her current research uses eddy covariance and stable isotopes to investigate the seasonality of carbon cycling in native Eucalyptus woodlands near Sydney, as part of the Australian Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (opens in a new window) and OzFlux (opens in a new window). Elise's research interests centre on how linkages between aboveground and belowground ecosystem components regulate carbon, water and nutrient cycling in grasslands, forests and crops. She uses stable isotope techniques to investigate carbon storage in soils, water losses from plants, and nitrogen turnover by soil microbes. She works closely with postdocs and students to conduct basic and applied research on ecosystems in Australia and beyond.

I'm interested in the metabolism of terrestrial ecosystems - the breathing of the Earth - and how it can mitigate climate change...

Key research questions investigate how climate change and ecological disturbances might impact carbon storage and water loss from these sensitive ecosystems. Elise has authored more than 80 refereed journal articles, including a highly cited synthesis of belowground process responses to climate change. Recently, she has shown that plant species mediate feedbacks to climate change by altering decomposition and nutrient cycling processes, and ecosystem respiration decreases with warming in a semiarid grassland, with important influences of prior soil moisture and temperature.
