Research

Dissertation focusing on artificial regeneration strategies for a broader diversity of native tree species in the PNW. As we work toward a more diverse forested landscape that can serve ecological, economic and cultural objectives, we need to consider ecophysiological parameters of nursery-grown plants to more functionally prescribe their use in reforestation or restoration efforts. The applied dissertation research spans the gamut from the use of beneficial microbes and for enhanced seed(ling) performance in both nursery and field settings, to the broader view of how light and moisture conditions (influenced by overstory/canopy conditions) affect the performance of planted nursery stock.
