General research themes in the Ogle Lab include:
- Functional ecology of North American trees
- Linking individual- and species-specific tree functional traits to forest dynamics
- Ecology of arid and semi-arid systems
- Synthesis of long-term data to understand factors governing soil and ecosystem carbon dynamics
- Effects of climate change and variability on terrestrial ecosystems
- Linking above- and below-ground plant and ecosystem processes
- Use of stable isotopes to partition plant and ecosystem processes
- Modeling of plant and ecosystem processes
- Bayesian statistical applications in ecology
