The mission of the Forest Soils Lab is to understand the interaction of humans with forest ecosystems in the interest of sustainable management of forest, soil and water resources. This laboratory utilizes a balanced approach of basic and applied research to examine the links between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems at multiple scales through the study of soil, water, sediment, nutrients and carbon. Students are educated and encouraged to manage land responsibly in the face of climate change, population growth and other pressures on natural resources.
