About Me

IMG_4578Welcome! I’m Marissa Vossmer, a beginning forest ecologist and aspiring botanist. My research involves changes in forest structure throughout time in western Sierra Nevada forests and how this has altered conifer seedling relationships with establishment conditions. I am interested in exploring the associations between seedlings and their abiotic and biotic establishment conditions and identifying how these relationships respond to changing forest conditions. I graduated from Humboldt State University in 2014 with my B.S. in Ecological Restoration and a concentration in botany and from California Polytechnic State University in 2017 with my M.S. in Forestry Science. Please see my Research and CV tab for more information on my current research and past projects!
