The list of publications from the Wetland Biogeochemistry lab contains 25 peer-reviewed journal articles, 8 peer-reviewed book chapters, and 4 non-peer-reviewed items. Many of the publications are freely available online, either because they were published as open-access articles or are old enough that the publisher has made the items available. Electronic copies of many of the other publications can be found elsewhere online; you might start with my Google Scholar profile or my ResearchGate pages. You can also request copies of these publications by e-mailing me directly at
