RTI Supported Thesis Papers

Graduate research is a major source of hard science that is being used as a tool toward the transfer of technology to rural forest communities. RTI has provided funding for graduate student research at the University of Washington's College of Forest Resources to tap into this invaluable source, and to aid the RTI staff toward reaching the Initiative's goals. Below is a growing list of thesis papers that have been completed with support from the Rural Technology Initiative, or completed by RTI staff.
