Professor Jon Lloyd
Imperial College London
A plant physiologist by training, Jon has long been interested in exchanges of CO2, water vapour and energy between natural ecosystems and the environment especially in terms of the underlying physiological mechanisms and ecological implications. More recently, his work has also moved below-ground with a developing interest in the relationship between soil conditions and ecosystem structure, dynamics and productivity. He is also interested in working on the improvement of climate change predictions through the integration of physiology into models of mass and energy transfer between the atmosphere and the biosphere and maintains an active interest in isotopic fractionations during photosynthesis and respiration (at plant, ecosystem and global scales) and in the past has also published extensively on atmospheric trace gas composition and change in relation to climate.
