Subject: [ECOLOG-L] Graduate Opportunities in Forest Ecology - OHIO Univ
GRADUATE OPPORTUNITIES IN FOREST ECOLOGY
The graduate program in Forest Ecology in the Department of Environmental
and Plant Biology at Ohio University invites students to apply to the MS and
PhD programs beginning in Fall 2011. The Forest Ecology program offers
comprehensive training and research in the biology of Eastern hardwood
forests, with expertise at the full range of the ecological hierarchy:
organisms, populations, communities, ecosystems, and landscapes. The
program consists of seven faculty, specializing in various sub-disciplines,
and a graduate student community of ca. 30 individuals. Students have an
opportunity to examine basic conceptual issues of forest and plant dynamics,
as well as, their direct application to problems of conservation and forest
management. Some current areas of research include biological invasions,
land use history, water transport in trees and seedlings, consequences of
energy production on forest dynamics, and American chestnut restoration.
Deadline for application is Jan!
uary 15, 2011. All students accepted into the graduate program are
supported by either teaching or research assistantships. Ohio University is
situated in the small town of Athens, nestled in the densely forested hills
of southeast Ohio. Check out our website at
are strongly encouraged to correspond directly with specific faculty that
they may be interested in working with.
