Feedbacks Between Wood Structure and Function Driving Forest Tree Responses to Extreme Drought
Mentored by Jay Wason

Madeline Eberly studies the effect of drought on forest trees in Maine. This will aid professionals in natural resources to better understand how to work with the forests challenged with climate change. Shifts in forest composition could change the forest industry.

“Our forestry program is awesome,” says Eberly. “It is exciting to be a part of the learning process and be able to work hands-on in the lab and field.”
