Dr. Alexander V. Kirdyanov

Lead scientist

I am a dendro-scientist interested in the effect of environmental changes on forest ecosystems and woody plants. I use a multi-parameter approach to explore tree-ring variability on multiple scales in space (from a single tree to hemisphere) and time (from days to centuries and millennia).
