This forest ecology site at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities is the home page for the Reich research group. Further, it is the landing page of the forest ecology research group which includes the Montgomery labs and the Center for Forest Ecology (Frelich). All are based in the Department of Forest Resources. The Hobbie, Cavender-Bares and Powers labs in the Dept. of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior, 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!

In the forest ecology lab we address questions of a fundamental nature while simultaneously focusing on issues of importance to society and the environment, often within a global environmental change framework.
