Our mission involves answering the following questions:
What processes in forest ecosystems are sensitive to physical
and chemical changes in the atmosphere?
How future physical and chemical climate changes will influence
the structure, function, and productivity of forest and related
ecosystems, and to what extent forest ecosystems will change in
response to atmospheric changes?
What are the implications for forest management and how must
forest management activities be altered to sustain forest productivity,
health, and diversity?
