Trees, forests and climate!

Contributors

About

I am a scientist interested in the response of trees and forests to climate (and climate change), and also role that the Earth's forests play in regulating global climate. I use tree rings to reconstruct the growth of trees (making me a dendrochronologist), but I'm also interested in other aspects of forest ecology, such as tree reproduction. My posts therefore tend to focus on stories related to forests and ecology, but I sometimes venture into discussions about biodiversity or climate science too.
