Located at Ben-Gurion University, our lab performs research on the soil-water-plant interaction. In particular, we investigate how water and temperature influence the productivity of annual plants and wheat, and how physical and human factors affect land degradation and variation in soil quality, both spatially and temporally. Further work investigates the controls over grazing pathways, and climatic and environmental effects on ancient cultures. In addition to contributing basic science, our research informs on the response of ecosystems to climate change and to landuse changes.
In our investigations we use space-time modeling with fuzzy logic, multicriteria and physically based models. The experiments range in scale from centimeters to tens of meters.
