Use of Long Term Experimental Forrest Provenance Trials for Selection of Future Forests: Tools to Predict Forest Adaptation to Climate Change

Lead PI: Neil Pederson

Unit Affiliation: Biology and Paleo Environment, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)

Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The project will use patterns and sensitivity of forests from a latitudinal gradient of seed sources to recommend which seed sources of pitch pine are best for reforestation in a changing climate.

OUTCOMES: Completed analysis of all tree samples and found that the 1992 ring was often missing which has lead to the need to further analyze 30 native pitch pines.
