Responsible for the conception, management, and leadership of international, multi-agency, interdisciplinary research programs focusing on global change in forest and wetland habitats of the world. The science goals are to further our understanding of the critical roles of forest and wetland ecosystems and their dynamic interactions with land use and global climate change, development of information on vulnerability to climate change, and approaches to ecosystem conservation, adaptation and mitigation. Studies are currently located in the mangroves and freshwater forested wetlands throughout Indonesia, Bangladesh, and Mexico. Additional studies are examining interactions of fire and exotic grasslands are located in Hawaii. Future study sites of wetlands and climate change will be located in SE Asia, Africa and Latin America.
