Forest Ecology Research Group
Located at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, the Forest Ecology Research Group examines the impacts of global change on forest ecosystems and their functions.
We seek to understand how different aspects of global change, most notably climate warming are altering the structure, function and composition of forest communities. By understanding the mechanisms underlying community response to global change factors, we can better anticipate the responses of these communities to future conditions.
We focus on forest ecosystems including tropical, temperate and boreal forests as well as low arctic tundra.
