About me

Andrew Mehring, Mt Ngauruhoe
My research interests are based in ecosystem ecology and community ecology and focus on the following areas:
  • Animal-plant-microbe interactions and effects on ecosystem function

  • Urban ecology (insular biogeography, green infrastructure, heavy metal cycling)

  • Global Change and elemental cycling in aquatic ecosystems (greenhouse gas flux, carbon and nutrient cycling)

  • Invertebrate ecology (Aquatic and terrestrial)
