Tree ring dating

Tamarisk stem cross-section cut 2.8 m below the ground surface showing how sediment deposition is dated using tree rings.  Following initial burial of 68 cm in 1969, ring-width decreased, vessel size increased, and annual transitions became less distinct. After a second burial by 41 cm in 1972, annual transitions became indistinguishable.

Internship: Plant and insect invasions and novel host use

Plant and insect invasions and novel host use.

Summary: Plants and insects comprise a large portion of problematic invasive species. The success of these invasions largely depends on the outcomes of plant-insect interactions in which plants that escape herbivores may be more successful invaders, and herbivores that find adequate hosts have the opportunity to

Before and after wildfire mitigation

This before and after image shows the same area before and after dense trees and brush were cleared for wildfire mitigation efforts. The WiRe (Wildfire Research Team) conducts research to support these mitigation efforts and other components of wildfires and communities. More can be learned on their website.
