Adrian Das


I am an Ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Western Ecological Research Center, stationed at Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. I study tree dynamics with a particular focus on tree mortality processes. My work is aimed at improving our understanding of western forests and increasing our capacity to assess how they will be affected by a changing climate.
