OSU Climate Change Webinar

Feb 27, 2014, 12:00pm - 1:00pm


Participate in the OSU Climate Change Webinar on Predicting Carbon Storage of Great Lakes Forests in the Year 2050 with Peter Curtis, OSU Professor of Ecology.

Forests across North-Central and North-Eastern North America historically have been responsible for most of the continent’s biological carbon storage, helping to slow atmospheric carbon dioxide increases. However, these forests are aging and are beset by a variety of pests and pathogens. In the face of continuing climate change, what does this mean for the future?

This webinar will provide information about:

  •           Links between forest age, biological and structural complexity, and ecosystem resilience to disturbance
  •           Current approaches to predicting carbon storage by future forests
  •           Management options that promote the sustainable delivery of forest ecosystem goods and services

This will be followed by a Q&A.

The webinar is free. To register click here. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with log-in information.
