The story on our redwood research run on NPR “All things considered” on October 27th, 2016
The new Blue Oak Ranch Reserve campus is now officially OPEN. Check out the new website for the reserve and all of the information you’ll need to come visit!
A study from Dawson lab and collaborators on the role of fog as a source of nitrogen for redwood trees is now out in “Journal of Ecology” and it has been chosen as “Editor’s Choice” for this special issue of the journal. See link:
Anthony, Wendy and Todd are trying to get a better understanding of how Giant Sequoia trees in the Sierra Nevada respond to severe drought. Check this out at http://kvpr.org/post/drought-killing-giant-sequoias
And you can find more recent media coverage here:
The American Geophysical Union (AGU) has announced its 2015 class of Fellows, and Todd has been elected. This honor is given to individual AGU members who have made exceptional scientific contributions and attained acknowledged eminence in the fields of Earth and space sciences. Since the establishment of the AGU Fellows program in 1962, and in accordance with AGU bylaws, no more than 0.1 percent of the total membership of AGU is recognized annually.

Dario Ravaioli (Forestry, University of Bologna, Italy) is visiting the lab for two months during the Fall of 2014.
His research focuses on long-term variation of water use efficiency in Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) from the Vallombrosa Forest in Italy. His visit at UC Berkeley will focus on quantifying the effects of rising atmospheric [CO2] on tree growth using Carbon and Oxygen stable isotopes analyses.
Grazielle Sales Teodoro, a graduate student from the Department of Biologia Vegetal, UNICAMP, Brazil, is visiting the lab. She will stay until July 2013.
