Frances is interested in how the spatially heterogeneous vegetation structure and sporadic rainfall patterns found in savannas influence the carbon dynamics of these ecosystems. Her fieldwork on the Kalahari Transect in southern Africa investigates the distribution and dynamics of soil carbon and belowground biomass.
To the right above is a picture of Frances on the tranquil shore of Lake Wobegon.
