Description: 

My scientific interests began with a focus on arboreal organisms living in the crowns of tall trees, but has recently shifted to the trees themselves, particularly the five species with living individuals over 300 feet tall. How fast do they grow, what limits their maximum size, and how will they respond to a changing climate? My team is also considering how second-growth forests might be managed to accelerate the development of old-growth forest complexity and biodiversity.
