Research Interests

General:
The relationships between natural and man-made environmental stresses and tree growth, mortality, and forest structure and composition.

Specific:
Evaluating the impacts of air pollution, climate stresses, global warming, competition, soil fertility on tree growth and mortality. Primary research techniques involve analysis of tree-rings and long-term monitoring of tree and forest conditions.
