Working to find the most suitable seed sources for reforestation under climate change.
My work in forest and conservation science aims to help solve pressing challenges across Canada and the world, including forest adaptation to climate change. Using a variety of tree-ring methods, I have studied tree population adaptation to warming and increasing probability of climatic extremes (drought and cold), with implications for forest management in a warmer world. My current work focuses on quantitative genetics, ensuring the most suitable tree seed for reforestation is deployed on the landscape.
