Presentations

TREES Lab Presentations

TREES Lab faculty, staff, and over 44 students have presented their research at 57 professional conferences across 18 states, two Canadian Provinces, Sweden, and Argentina. Presenting research is an important part of the research process. TREES Lab provides support and encouragement for students researchers to develop presentations and gain experience disseminating the results of their work. A gallery of our research posters is included at the bottom of this page.
