That weather and climate have a major influence on forests is a familiar concept to most of us. But forests also influence climate in ways that aren’t always appreciated and are still being discovered. This applies to local as well as global processes and extends from the early evolution of trees to the current era of rapid, human-induced change.
The Ecological Landscape Alliance will hold a Forest Ecosystems and the Winds of Change webinar on January 19th from Noon to 1 pm EST.
This presentation by Dr. Scott Ollinger from the Earth Systems Research Center at the University of New Hampshire will explore the fascinating role of forests as a key part of the climate system, and how researchers are still unraveling their mysteries using tools ranging from state-of-the-art satellite sensors to old-fashioned walks in the woods.
