Experimental Forest Monitoring for Climate Change

Monday, August 26, 2013

 A new collaborative project is capitalizing on Forest Service long-term silvicultural research to show how climate change adaptation can be integrated into silvicultural planning and actions. 

The overall purpose of this study is to examine the capacity of forest management strategies, such as density management, to impart resilience and resistance of ecological processes to changing climate and increasing weather variability on Experimental Forests in the eastern and southwestern United States. This work has initially been focused on several Experimental Forests in the upper Lake States, New England, Ohio, and Arizona, but is seeking additional collaborators at other Experimental Forests.
