Ezequiel Fernandez Tschieder
Ezequiel Fernandez Tschieder is a second year Ph.D. student in the Graduate Degree Program in Ecology from Argentina. He graduated with a degree in Forestry from La Plata National University and then completed a Master of Science in Natural Resources at Buenos Aires University, Argentina. In his home country, he has a position at the National Institute for Agricultural Technology (INTA), and is an assistant in the Department of Silviculture at La Plata National University that he will resume after completing his Ph.D. As part of his Ph.D., he is working with Dan Binkley and his research is focused on the production ecology and management of forests plantations. Ezequiel is attempting to understand how the resource use, the resource use efficiency, and growth dominance relates to the size of trees and to the structure of the stand in forest plantations. The broad sense of his research is to link the Silviculture with ecological processes.
