Climate, People, and the Environment Program Seminar Series - Christy Rollinson

Influences of Climate and Land Management on US Forests: Past, Present, Future

Event Details

Tuesday, April 2, 2019
9:30-10:30 a.m.
Temperatures in the U.S. are expected to rise 1.6-6.6˚C by 2100, and precipitation regimes will shift as well. We know human activities such as forest management and land use change impact forest dynamics and even a single event can influence forest dynamics for decades to come. My talk will discuss the role both climate and anthropogenic changes have had on forest dynamics in the Midwest and broader US through a combination of empirical datasets and ecosystem modeling.
