Research Interests and Activities: Linda H. Pardo has worked at the
Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest since 1989. Her research interests include
nutrient cycling, especially nitrogen cycling, and biogeochemistry of light
stable isotopes. Current projects include: (1) Response of soil and litter δ
15N to clear-cutting, (2) Comparison of δ
15N and nitrification potential across a nitrate-loss gradient in
NH, (3) Assessment of the source of streamwater nitrate using 15N
and 18O at HBEF and across New Hampshire
