Current Projects

The primary focus of the INGY research program in recent years has been the development of data sets for modeling the conditioning effects of under- and over-story competition on the growth of small trees, as well as an evaluation of the existing regional equations for quantifying crown and stem components of whole tree biomass in interior conifers.
