Graduate students for 2018

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

We’re interested in recruiting graduate students for 2018, but a reality check is needed as well.  While opportunities exist for students interested in plant microbe interactions, genetic diversity of temperate and tropical trees, and tropical tree genomics, support for students is limited and prospoective students are encouraged to seek their own funding to support their […]

Integrating functional, phylogenetic and genetic components of diversity for an improved understanding of forest structure, dynamics, and change

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Very excited to report that our NSF Dimensions of Biodiversity grant to continue ForestGEO/CTFS analytical workshops with NSF – China has officially been awarded.  This is in collaboration with PI Stuart Davies (STRI) and coPIs Liza Comita (Yale), Nathan Swenson (Maryland), and Helene Muller-Landau (STRI). Looking forward to seeing everyone in China in the summer […]

The effect of an extreme El Nino event on tropical forest seedling regeneration

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

The Jones lab is happy to report that we’ve been awarded an NSF RAPID grant to study the effects of the extreme 2016 El Nino event on tropical forest regeneration across a strong rainfall gradient in Panama.  The project is in collaboration with Drs. Liza Comita (Yale University), Bettina Engelbrecht (University of Bayreuth), Joe Wright […]
