Adam Miller

As a theoretical ecologist, Adam is interested in using mathematical and simulation models to understand the dynamics of communities and ecosystems. Specifically, he has focused on how plant communities react to different disturbance regimes, including fires, floods, hurricanes and climate change. As part of a project studying Carbon Dynamics of Forest Recovery Under a Changing Climate (see Carbon_Dynamics), Adam is investigating future changes to forest successional pathways that can result from species-specific responses to CO2. On the Klamath project, Adam is using theoretical models to study the effects of fire regimes on forest regeneration.

On our project, Dr. Miller will conduct the theoretical modelling of fire and steady-state vegetation dynamics.
