Tun (O’Neill) works on
(1) Myanmar’s forests’ carbon storage;
(2) role of forests in the national economy and socioeconomic development through REDD+;
(3) species compositional variations in the forests due to ecological factors.
During his first year PhD, he investigated the ecological drivers which affect standing forest carbon stock and tree diversity variations of the five major forest types in Myanmar and whether these forests continue to exist for the future national REDD+ scheme by taking into account the response of standing forest carbon stock to environmental conditions, forest tenure, and understanding stand diversity and structure of the forests.
