About Tong Qiu
I am a broadly trained ecologist interested in understanding the response of the terrestrial ecosystem to global change at regional to global scales. My lab takes a data-model synthesis approach that integrates satellite and airborne remote sensing, monitoring networks, and forest inventory with Bayesian hierarchical models to develop nature-based solutions to fight climate change. We are interested in understanding tree reproduction variations and how they relate to climate, nutrient availability, and habitat conditions. We are also interested in understanding the complex interactions between climate warming and habitat that govern biodiversity change in multiple species groups.
