Regeneration and Reproductive Biology Team

Person inspecting a tree with yellow foliage

Of primary concern are studies involving the production and germination of tree seed and the establishment, survival, and growth of seedlings. The team envisions studies that range from the complexities of recalcitrant seed storage and seed chemical composition to environmental factors and silvicultural methods affecting natural and artificial stand regeneration.
