The Northeast Climate Adaption Science Center will hold an Early Lessons from Operational Forest Adaptation Studies in the Northern Forest webinar on Wednesday, May 6, 2020 from noon to 1pm EST.
Climate change, shifts in disturbance regimes, and an increasing prevalence of non-native invasive insects and diseases have created considerable uncertainty around the ability of historic forest management approaches to sustain forest habitats into the future.
In response to this challenge, a series of operational-scale forest adaptation studies and complementary mesocosm and modeling experiments have been established over the past decade to support science needs for informing effective management strategies to employ in this novel context.
This webinar presented by Anthony D’Amato, Professor of Silviculture & Applied Forest Ecology at the University of Vermont, will highlight early outcomes and lessons learned from large-scale (>400 acre) adaptation silviculture studies in Minnesota and New Hampshire, as well as numerous field trials across the Lake States and northeastern US.
