Welcome to the Tree Physiology and Ecosystem Science Lab at North Carolina State University!
Our research group is interested in a variety of topics associated with physiology and ecology of forested ecosystems. We are located within the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources in North Carolina State University's College of Natural Resources. For more information, please take a look at our current projects and our lab members or contact John King at john_king "at" ncsu.edu.
