My research is on boreal forest regeneration and how to adapt it to the changing climate of the future. This involves understanding how planting position, seed coating, insect damage and addition of arginine influence seedlings resilience to environmental factors, especially drought. By adapting forest management practices to the conditions of the future, we may be able to increase survival and ensure good establishment of seedlings.
