James A Lutz
James A Lutz, Principal Investigator
Jim Lutz is the Principal Investigator for the Wind River Forest Dynamics Plot. His interests are in the rates and causes of mortality, as well as the effects of climate and wind on forest demography. Jim is an Assistant Professor of Forest Ecology at Utah State Univiersity.
Andrew J Larson
Andrew J Larson, Principal Investigator
Andrew Larson is a Principal Investigator for the Wind River Forest Dynamics Plot. His interests include long-term change in forest ecosystems, especially as related to natural disturbance and forest structural development. He is particularly interested in the use of ecological theory to establish forest restoration targets and guide restoration treatment design. Andrew is Assistant Professor of Forest Ecology at the University of Montana College of Forestry and Conservation.

Mark Swanson is a Principal Investigator for the Wind River Forest Dynamics Plot. His interests include landscape ecology, silvicultural restoration, and early seral communities. Mark is Associate Professor of Forest Ecology at Washington State University.
James A Freund
James A Freund, Investigator
James Freund is an investigator for the Wind River Forest Dynamics Plot. His interests include forest community dynamics, especially as related to old-growth forests and large individual trees on the Pacific Slope of North America. James is a PhD candidate at the University of Washington College of the Environment.
Jerry Franklin
Jerry F Franklin
Jerry Franklin was the PhD adviser of all the investigators of the Wind River Forest Dynamics Plot (ME Swanson 2007, JA Lutz 2008, AJ Larson 2009, and JA Freund 2013). The WFDP encloses both the original 4 ha canopy crane plot established by Jerry in 1994, and also the 12 ha plot established in 1999 by his then-PhD student Jiquan Chen. Jerry's knowledge of forest ecology, support during project planning, and work in the field was instrumental in initiating the research, and the investigators continually value his advice and guidance.
