Jeffrey Wood – University of Missouri
Changes in Forest Behavior after Crossing a Drought Threshold
I’m an Assistant Professor in the School of Natural Resources at the University of Missouri. My research is broadly aimed at improving scientific understanding and prediction of how ecosystems interact with weather and climate. A major area of recent interest is focused on how forest behavior is influenced by drought. I use a variety of techniques to measure the “breathing” and the “pulse” of trees and the whole forest. My research is highly collaborative and involves scientists from different fields of study.

In a recent study, I worked with collaborators from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, CalTech and UCLA on research where we discovered what we called the “ecosystem wilting point”, a threshold defining changes in whole-forest behavior under drought.
