Forest canopy structure reflects succession and competition among trees for resources. KC studies how canopy structure relates to patterns of forest productivity. As airborne and spaceborne observations of forest structure become more widely available, this research will increase understanding of how productivity is globally distributed among forests, and how climate and land use change will alter forests’ role in the global carbon cycle.
