MS Graduate Research Assistant - August 2020
Adaptive silviculture for climate change: effects of silvicultural treatments on fuels, fire behavior, and fire effects in a longleaf pine ecosystem
The assistantship will be in collaboration with the Jones Center at Ichauway (JCI; http://www.jonesctr.org/), an institution dedicated to excellence in natural resource management and conservation. This project is part of the Adaptive Silviculture for Climate Change (ASCC) network, designed to evaluate silvicultural treatments for resistance, resilience, and transition to future climate conditions. In longleaf pine ecosystems, fire is critical for sustaining ecosystem function. This research will evaluate effects of ASCC treatments on fuel characteristics, fire behavior, and fire effects.
