Joanna I. Lumbsden-Pinto- SUNY ESF

Joanna’s major research interest lies in studying the interaction between ecosystem dynamics and the effects of both anthropogenic activities and climate change. She seeks to understand how this interaction impacts the resilience and adaptability of forests and the implications it carries for their management and restoration. Her curiosity drives her to explore such topics with the aim of developing sustainable approaches, interdisciplinary management strategies, and conservation methodologies that safeguard and preserve forests, their components, and their inhabitants, including Indigenous Peoples.
