New NASA grant funded to study forest regeneration
The SEEDS lab, in collaboration with Duke University, has received an approximately one million grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). This project will study forest recruitment changes in the eastern United States. We will partner with the Pennsylvania (PA) Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and develop end-user decision supporting tools to understand forest regeneration potential and the vast community that depends on it. To support this effort, PA DCNR is contributing an additional $450,000 in-kind cost-share to the project. Other PIs on this grant include Dr. Jim Clark at Duke University and Dr. Marc McDill at Penn State. More details on this research theme can be found here. I am actively recuirting Ph.D. students and summer research technicians to work on this project.
