IPMs can be used to create forest growth and survival models to produce an understanding of forest populations and communities
This project seeks to measure the structure of forest canopies throughout the world using a portable LIDAR instrument.
This project maps the spatial distribution of more than 33,000 live and dead woody stems with diameters of at least 1.0 cm in the SERC Forest Dynamics Plot.
Tree growth can be difficult to measure, but it is imperative to understanding forest stability and function. We measure trees in a variety of ways to better understand forest function and stability.
We are working to model rare mortality events to better understand this aspect of forest dynamics
We are studying the timing of growth to understand the importance of seasonal patterns and how they are adjusting to a changing climate
