“Chlorophyll fluorescence and photosynthesis at the landscape scale” - Joe Berry

Friday, November 16, 2018 at 12:20pm

Plant Science Building, 404

Joseph Berry
Acting Director, Carnegie Institution for Science

Joe Berry has been a Carnegie investigator since 1972. He has developed powerful tools to measure local and regional exchanges of carbon over spaces of up to thousands of square miles. He uses information at the plant scale to extrapolate the carbon balance at regional and continental scales.

According to ISI's Web of Science, two of Joe Berry's papers passed extremely high, rarefied citation milestones. The 1980  paper “A biochemical model of photosynthetic CO2 assimilation in leaves of C3 species,” has had over 1,500th citations. His 1982 paper “On the relationship between carbon isotope discrimination and the intercellular carbon dioxide concentration in leaves” passed its 1,000th citation mark.

Berry received his bachelors in chemistry from UC-Davis and his masters there in soil science. He received his PhD in botany from the University of British Columbia. Learn more at
