Masters Position: Vegetation Dynamics, Texas State University

Open immediately: Research/teaching scholarship available for a qualified MS student in the Biology Department at Texas State University, San Marcos. The focus of this research opportunity is the recent tree die-off event that affected the state of Texas in the aftermath of the drought years of 2009 and 2011. The student will travel throughout west and central Texas and collect field data to quantify tree mortality rates and their site-specific correlates. Interested students are invited to participate in working with a dynamic vegetation model to improve the prediction of drought-related tree mortality events.
