Forests of the N Rockies: challenges for their health, function and role during climatic uncertainty
- Monday, October 7, 2019 from 7:00pm to 8:00pm
- Norm Asbjornson Hall, Inspiration Hall (Room 201)
Overview of the unique forests of the Northern Rockies, their function and how forest management and climatic variability impacts their future as well as the rural communities that reside within them.
Peter has spent the past 35 years studying forest ecological processes as they pertain to their natural history and the influence of forest management practices. For the past 23 years he has worked as a science liason between the applied practice of forest management and the academic advancement of ecological knowledge pertaining to tree physiology, ecological disturbances and regional biogeochemical processes. This has given him a unique perspective of the challenges currently faced by forest ecosystems across the northern Rockies that are reacting to a changing climate, and the forest landowners, managers, conservation organizations, wood products industry and rural communities that depend on these forests for their livelihood and well being.
