Doctoral Degrees

Paul Arthur Duffy*
Ph.D.      Forest Science: Interdisciplinary Program

B.A., University of Colorado, Boulder, 1995; M.A., University of Montana, Missoula, 1998

Thesis: Interactions Among Climate, Fire, and Vegetation in the Alaskan Boreal Forest
To assess the impact of climate change on the Alaska boreal forest, interactions among climate, fire and vegetation were quantified. This work shows that climatic signals exert the dominant influence on the area burned. These results inform a simulation model to assess the historical and future states of the Alaska boreal forest.
Major Professor: Dr. Scott Rupp

Evan Scott Kane*
Ph.D.      Forest Ecology: Interdisciplinary Program

B.S., Michigan Technology University, 1999; M.S., Michigan Technology University, 2001

Thesis: Mechanisms of Soil Carbon Stabilization in Black Spruce Forests of Interior Alaska: Soil Temperature, Soil Water, and Wildfire
This thesis addresses: 1) How stand production and temperature affect soil carbon stabilization, 2) the quantity and composition of water soluble organic carbon across gradients in productivity and climate, and 3) physiographic controls on wildfire and the legacy of wildfire in stable soil carbon formation (black carbon accumulation).
Major Professor: Dr. David Valentine
