Cambria Monterey pine research gets some press!


Lab undergraduate researchers, Kevin Hurt and Matt Terzes, made news this week with their demography research on endemic Monterey pine (Pinus radiata). Kevin and Matt are working to identify patterns of mortality and regeneration with a long-term dataset provided by UC Kenneth Norris Rancho Marino director, Don Canestro. They are interested in the role of microclimate heterogeneity and inter-annual climate variability on temporal and spatial variation in Monterey pine demography.
