TongliTongli Wang
Ph.D., Associate Director, Centre for Forest Conservation Genetics, Department of Forest Sciences, UBC

Research Interests:
Dr. Wang has been working on several climate change related studies. His major research interests include: 1) developing climate models; 2) projecting bioclimate envelopes of ecosystems and species ranges for future climates; 3) building climate response functions for tree populations; and 4) developing climate-based seed transfer systems. The output of these studies has served as part of the basis for this project.
