He is actively engaged in archival research on the history of the forests of the Northeast and in field studies on the dynamics and structure of the vegetation of eastern North America. His talk on the “Composition and Structure of the Presettlement Forests of New York and New England” will delve into the theory, field studies of old-growth, and surveyor data to reconstruct the forests before European settlement.
