Dr. Vogel studies how ecosystem management, the physical environment, plant and microbial communities interact to affect the cycling of carbon, nitrogen and other nutrients through terrestrial ecosystems. For management, he has focused on how forest productivity responds to silvicultural treatments and how this response affects other ecosystem processes (e.g. soil carbon and nutrient cycling) through changes in tree biomass allocation. His research in boreal and arctic ecosystems is focused on how element cycling is affected by climate change. He teaches silviculture FRSC 305 during the spring semester.
