PaleoEcology and Fire Ecology Lab

Forest and fire ecology in the context of environmental change

Research in the PaleoEcology and Fire Ecology Lab focuses on understanding the interactions among climate, vegetation, and wildfire activity over a range of spatial and temporal scales, in the past, present, and future. Understanding ecological change over time integrates projects within the lab, revealing patterns and processes unobservable over human life spans, providing context for ongoing environmental change, and helping anticipate the consequences of future environmental change.
