In the Silviculture and Restoration Ecology lab at Univeristy of Missouri, we work to advance the science of silviculture through applied and basic research. Our research emphasizes addressing contemporary issues in forest management, with specific interest in merging silvicultural practices with the emerging science of restoration ecology.


We welcome your interest in what we do! Please explore our website to learn more and feel free to contact for more information.
