Background
Caleb’s dissertation focused on the spatial and temporal patterns and ecosystem functions of labile dissolved organic carbon. He has also worked on the influence of terrestrial-aquatic linkages on stream nitrogen dynamics. At the University of Kansas,he is studying how large scale geomorphic factors control the importance of terrestrial organic matter in riverine food webs.
