The CTFS-ForestGEO Ecosystems & Climate lab is part of the Center for Tropical Forest Science-Global Earth Observatory (CTFS-ForestGEO), which is a global network of forest research plots and scientists dedicated to the study of forest function and diversity. We are based at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) in Front Royal, Virginia, USA. Dr. Kristina Anderson-Teixeira leads the lab and the CTFS-ForestGEO Ecosystems & Climate Program.

Research in the lab employs a variety of methods including data synthesis, field research, and modeling to understanding how global change is altering forests around the world and how changes to forest ecosystems will either mitigate or exacerbate climate change.
