Ecosystem Science & Management

Tucker J. Furniss, PhD

Assistant Professor







Tucker Furniss is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management and is part of the Laboratory for Regional Earth System Modeling. His research focuses on forests, tree mortality, and disturbance ecology of western landscapes. He uses a combination of field-based longitudinal monitoring, remote sensing, and process-based simulation models to understand how climate, management, and ecological processes are influencing the structure, function, and resilience of forest ecosystems. Tucker is motivated by a deep passion for our western forests and is devoted to producing research that informs science-based management and policy on public lands.
