Welcome Pinelands Director Dr. John Dighton into Department
We are very pleased to welcome Dr. John Dighton into the Department. John is a forest soil ecologist and serves as Director of Rutgers Pinelands Research Station. He has a wealth of experience investigating nutrient requirements of forest plantation trees and symbiotic relationships between trees and mycorrhizal fungi. As Director of the Pinelands Station, John has been an active member of the Graduate Program in Ecology and Evolution and has fostered ecological research and teaching, most recently by hosting nearly 20 EENR undergraduates in the Field Techniques course.
Our interdisciplinary department specializes in ecology, evolution, and natural resource conservation. We study the evolutionary origins and maintenance of biodiversity, conserving and restoring native ecosystems, and issues of global change such as managing natural resources within urban ecosystems.
