The Biogeography Lab of the Geography Department is directed
by Professor Thomas T. Veblen and supports research in the
areas of forest dynamics, disturbance ecology and dendroecology.
The principal facilities of the Lab include two computerized
tree-ring measuring systems, field equipment and instrumentation
to support research in plant ecology and dendrochronology,
and basic support for GIS applications in vegetation science.
Currently, the Lab supports research by two postdoctoral
research associates and six graduate students, assisted by
approximately five undergraduate students.
