Dr. Lovett's research is primarily focused on how perturbations such as air pollution, introduced pests and pathogens, and climate change affect forest ecosystems. His main field projects are in the Catskill Mountains and Hudson Valley of New York State and the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in New Hampshire.
Forest ecologist Gary Lovett discusses the economic and ecological impacts of forest pests and the possible policy implements that may reduce the threat.
Debate about the Trans-Pacific Partnership overlooks an unintended consequence of increased trade with Asia – the assault on America's trees.

Most of us are familiar with ammonia as an irritating gas that is emitted from window-cleaning fluids. It is a great way to cut through grease that has condensed on glass.
Woodland pools are temporary wetlands that provide important habitat to forest wildlife. They also help mitigate floods. While land development is a major threat to woodland pools, there are also subtle changes that undermine their health.
In the Northeast, one of the first signs of spring is the unmistakable calling of the spring peeper. While this small frog weighs only a few grams, its mating call is louder than that of many songbirds ten times its size.
Though not in the news as much as it once was, acid rain remains a problem. Power plants, factories, and vehicles give off sulfur and nitrogen oxide emissions, which react in the atmosphere to form sulfuric and nitric acids. These acids are then deposited back onto the landscape in rain, snow, fog, or particles.
Cary Institute’s Gary Lovett discusses how several invasive species are ravaging regional forests.
