Pine Tree Herbivory
We are interested in the study of responses to herbivory in long lived plants in a broad sense. We use pine trees and insect herbivory as a model. We are curious about the interactions among pines trees and their insect herbivores and pathogens, and how environmental factors (both biotic and abiotic), genetic variation within and between pine populations and other sources of phenotypic variation such as maternal effects can modulate those interactions. We try to understand how pine trees tolerate and resist insects and pathogens, joining approaches from quantitative genetics, evolutionary ecology, forest pathology and forestry. We are also interested in many other questions regarding forest genetics and ecology of pines and other trees.
