Tim Clough

Soil and Physical Sciences, Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Lincoln University, New Zealand

The focus of Tim’s research is nitrogen cycling in grazed pastures as it relates to the understanding and mitigation of reactive nitrogen fluxes, especially nitrous oxide. Tim’s research makes strong use of stable isotope tools to elucidate the fate, sources and transformations of nitrogen and carbon in soils.
Tim has served several terms as an associate editor for both the Journal of Environmental Quality and Soil Science Society of America Journal, and as a Technical Editor for the Journal of Environmental Quality. Currently he is the Senior Editor for the New Zealand Journal of Agricultural Research and a Chief Editor for Soil Biology & Biochemistry, and was recently made a Fellow of the Soil Science Society of America.

Lars Reier Bakken

Norwegian University of Life Sciences

LB used to be a “jack of all trades” in soil biology, but since 2004 his research has narrowed down to nitrogen transformations in general, and anoxic respiration in particular. LB formed the NMBU Nitrogen Group together with Åsa Frostegård and Peter Dörsch. The research of NMBUNG spans from field experiments and process studies to pure culture investigations of the physiology and regulatory biology of nitrifying and denitrifying prokaryotes.
