- Stambaugh’s research primarily concerns changes in forest ecosystems, both in time and space. Stambaugh is interested in documenting past changes in forests as a means for understanding potential future scenarios. His research commonly utilizes tree-rings because they are excellent archives based on their ability to: span long time periods (millennia), be precisely dated, and provide information at a sub-annual resolution. Currently he supervises research conducted by the Missouri Tree-Ring Laboratory (web.missouri.edu/~guyetter).
