Claudia Nanninga


I am interested in the impact of global climate change on temperate and boreal forest ecosystems, especially how altered temperature regimes will impact southern and northern range limits. My PhD researched focused on the impact of temperature on the phenology of trees. I am also passionate about ecosystem restoration. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, downhill skiing, and hanging out with my kids and dogs.
