Description: 

Our research focuses on important conceptual questions that inform forest management and conservation. We integrate field studies of plant communities with statistical modeling to understand how local processes (e.g., disturbance and succession) interact with regional processes (e.g., climate change, migration and invasion) to influence forest structure and function. These studies are used to design silvicultural systems and prescriptions that balance multiple objectives (e.g., ecological restoration, biodiversity maintenance, climate change adaptation and mitigation).
