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.
