Understanding and Predicting Tree Mortality

Tree mortality is central to an understanding of almost anything to do with forests, and yet we currently know little about the nature or magnitude of variation in tree mortality, how it depends on species, climate, or extreme events, or how best to include it in simulation models. This project aims to combine new models, with large forest inventory databases, to enable reliable predictions of tree mortality at scales from the individual tree, through the forest stand, to the globe.
