Thomas L. Noland
Thomas L. Noland received his B. S. degree in forest science from The Ohio State University, Columbus, his M. S. in forestry from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and his Ph.D. in plant sciences from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. His Ph.D. research was on the physiology and biochemistry of seed dormancy in sugar pine. After three postdoctoral positions working on conifer tissue culture, seed physiology, and plant molecular biology, he accepted a position as Tree Biochemist with the Ontario Forest Research Institute in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario in 1991. His research interests are tree stress biochemistry, pigment biochemistry, remote sensing, non-timber forest products (including bioenergy and bioproducts), and tree seed physiology and biochemistry. His current research projects range from analyzing bio-oil for value-added products to determining the effects of forest management on Caribou forage quality.
