Biogeography Lab

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.
