Neil Pederson, Forest Ecologist

I focus on the dynamics and long-term development of forests, from tree to subcontinental scales, as they interact with climate and as the trees interact amongst themselves. I dig natural history, charismatic megaflora, and old-growth forests and conducts basic and applied research to help develop ecologically-based, long-term forest management. One of my passions is the growth, longevity, and ecology of broadleaf trees and forests.

Engage me on Twitter or my blog, The Broadleaf Papers. More traditionally, you can email [neilpederson[at]fas[.]harvard[.]edu] or phone me at The Harvard Forest.
