Understanding how ecosystem response to future climate change become more critical issue for ecological study. Mostly, ecosystem carbon cycle is central to ecosystem response to climate change. Chang Gyo Jung, PhD student in the Luo lab at ECOSS, is trying to explain the tallgrass ecosystem responses. Since his undergraduate and master periods were focused on plant molecular biology under abiotic stress, currently, he is trying to expand a scope of his research from tiny level to large-scale –plant molecular responses to abiotic stress to ecosystem responses to climate change.
