Justin Becknell’s research is focused on the interactions among forest ecosystems, the climate system, and human activities. He uses a combination of field and remote sensing methods to study the flow of carbon and nutrients through forest ecosystems. Justin works in the tropical forests of Costa Rica and Brazil examining the ecological and biogeochemical consequences of deforestation and reforestation. In the temperate forests of New England, he studies the effects of management and climate on forest composition and function.
