Three PhD Fellowships available for Tropical Forest Ecophysiology 
and Modeling-January 2003 and January 2004

Two PhD fellowships are available January 2003 for studying the 
vertical structure and function of the canopy in a wet tropical 
forest at La Selva Biological Station in Costa Rica.  The project 
aims to understand how canopy structure and function vary within 
the canopy, across the landscape and with the environment. 
Measurements will be used with models to determine landscape carbon 
budgets and to determine links between interannual climate 
variability, tree growth, and ecosystem carbon storage. An 
additional PhD fellowship will be available January 2004 on the 
same project for the modeling component. 

One field-oriented PhD will be based at Florida International 
University in Miami, Florida (contact Steve Oberbauer, 
oberbaue at fiu.edu), and two PhDs (field measurements-January 2003 
and modeling-January 2004) will be based at Colorado State 
University (contact Mike Ryan, mgryan at fs.fed.us).
