We study long-term and broad-scale changes in forest ecosystems, with an emphasis on quantifying how land use - including harvest, conversion, and land protection - affects forest ecosystem processes and services. The majority of our work focuses on New England and is associated with the Harvard Forest Long Term Ecological Research Program. But we also work on issues related to climate and wildfire in the Pacific Northwest and on land-use scenarios around the world.
