Forest, Climate, and Global Change Research at Virginia Tech

What are the forests of the future?

We study how forests change over time, especially in how it relates to global change pressures (climate, nitrogen deposition, and land-use).  We have a particular focus on carbon and nitrogen cycling.

To address these questions, we work across a wide range of spatial scales, from individual trees to the globe using a broad set of tools, including ecosystem and Earth System models, remote sensing, large dataset analysis, and whole-ecosystem experiments.
