Research & Outreach
Through innovative research into forest science, botany, hydrology, fire ecology and broader natural resource areas, our program is making discoveries and disseminating new knowledge that is advancing the health, productivity and sustainability of forests.
Research and Teaching Assistantships
Our program is an advocate of supporting research-based education through collaboration and partnerships between our faculty and our graduate students. We offer teaching assistantships and research assistantships to graduate students.
From studying the fire-climate link in tundra ecosystems of North America to projects aimed at creating models of fire hazards in areas affected by bark beetles, research assistantships help to expand your body of knowledge and give you hands-on experience in the field.
Our faculty and student research programs are exploring some of the most complex issues facing the world of forest ecology and forest resources. From biomass production and genetic improvement of forested trees to watershed science, as part of the forest resources program you will find your niche.
