Brett A. Huggett

Assistant Professor of Biology



Carnegie Science Hall, Room 414


Ph.D.  2013 – Harvard University

Professor Huggett’s research is driven by a fascination with plant physiology and a passion for the forests of New England.  He is particularly interested in the physiological responses among tree species to both long-term and seasonal stress factors.  Research is often focused on plant water relations and carbon allocation, with a foundation in plant anatomy and morphology.  Through a mixture of field based and laboratory methods, he conducts research in the forests of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Massachusetts.
