If a tree falls in the woods, does Professor Margaret Carreiro hear it? Yes, she probably does. And that's a good thing for all of us! Prof. Carreiro specializes in urban and suburban ecology, and she has spent a large part of her career assisting cities in maintaining and often saving their urban forests. Not only does she perform academic research to understand ecological processes at work in urban environments, but she also takes a broader approach by applying her knowledge and collaborating with colleagues both inside and outside of the University to improve the quality of life for the community at large.
