The newly-established Tree-Ring Lab @ SouthernMiss offers a wide variety of research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. Our lab is centered around the science of dendrochronology, or the study of tree rings, which is a leading method for recording and monitoring ecological processes, climate change, and human impacts on the natural environment. Our research interests are broad, but focus on landscape dynamics and paleoenvironmental reconstruction. We use a variety of research methods, tools, and techniques to investigate topics related to forest dynamics and climatic variability at various spatiotemporal scales.
