California, preaching on the burning shore: assessing and mitigating the effects of climate change on California’s forests

April 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Climate change and novel disturbances are fundamentally altering forest composition and have the potential to lead to long-term, permanent changes to forest ecosystems. Using a network of field sites across California, Dr. Bisbing’s lab at UNR is quantifying the impacts of climate and disturbance on forest conditions in our beloved conifer forests. Sarah will present a vignette of findings from forests across the State, the changes documented in these systems, and the potential impacts of these changes on the future of California’s forests.
