New Editor-in-Chief of Forests
Timothy Martin has been on the faculty at the University of Florida School of Forest Resources and Conservation since 1997. He received a B.S. in Forest Management from Oklahoma State University, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Tree Physiology from the University of Georgia and University of Washington, respectively. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in natural resource management and tree physiology. His research program focuses on understanding the interacting influences of genetics, climate, environmental stresses, and forest management on forest productivity, water fluxes, and carbon sequestration, and to elucidate the physiological mechanisms underlying these responses. He is a co-Director of the Forest Biology Research Cooperative, which brings together corporate, government, and university scientists to better understand the interactions of genetics, silviculture, and the environment on forest productivity and sustainability. He authored or co-authored 75 peer-reviewed research publications, and has been Principal Investigator on more than $20 million in research grants.We would like to warmly welcome Professor Martin as Editor-in-Chief and look forward to his contribution to the continued success of Forests.
