Forest Ecology Lab

The forest ecology group at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities is made up of individuals from the Reich, Montgomery and D'Amato labs and the Center for Forest Ecology (Frelich) and is based in the Department of Forest Resources. The Hobbie, Cavender-Bares and Powers labs in the Dept. of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and the Kipfmueller lab in the Dept. of Geography are also participants in the group. Additionally, we collaborate with Tali Lee in the Biology Department at U of WI - Eau Claire, Cindy Hale at U of MN - Duluth, and Meredith Cornett at The Nature Conservancy and others.

Our 'group' is open to anyone with an interest in forest ecology!
