Fraver’s research explores the ecology of both natural and managed forests. Much of his work relies on dendrochronology (tree-ring) methods to assess tree growth and forest productivity through time. His projects investigate: – Old-growth forest structure and dynamics – Forest carbon dynamics – Woody debris dynamics, biodiversity, and biometrics – Climate–growth relationships of trees – Tree-tree competition in natural forests – Impacts of salvage logging.
