David Breshears

Dr. Dave Breshears’ research focuses on the ecohydrology of drylands, including emphasis on the grassland-forest continuum (gradients of woody plant coverage that include shrublands, savannas, and woodlands, as well as grasslands and forests); wind- and water-driven erosion and associated transport; and especially drought-induced tree mortality as affected by warmer temperatures accompanying climate change.  Through this work he strives to enable improved decision making and management regarding issues of land use, pollution, and global change.
