About our research…

Our research combines forest ecology and dendrochronology to investigate the influences of natural and anthropogenic disturbances and climate variation on the dynamics of temperate forests of western North and South America. We address theoretical questions by combining field and lab research techniques and apply our results to conservation and management of ecosystems.

We invite you to explore our website. Discover why our lab motto is “tree rings are fun!” Learn more about our projects, the great team of graduate students and undergraduate research assistants, collaborations in field and lab, and our contributions to scientific knowledge, teaching and learning.
