Dr. Reinhardt is a broadly-trained plant physiological ecologist and global change biologist. His general research interests are plant ecophysiology, climate change ecology, and ecohydrology. Currently, Dr. Reinhardt's primary research projects focus on understanding plant responses to climate change, and mechanisms of changes in species' range limits (i.e., resistance/resilience). His work spans organizational scales from molecular to the canopy/landscape level. His other interests include variation in light spectral quality due to sky condition (clear, cloudy, cloud-immersed), water transport (hydraulic function) in plants, and cloud-forest ecohydrology.
