Seeing the Forest for the Trees- Benzie CD Winter Webinar Series

March 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Winter Webinar Series: Seeing the Forest for the Trees

6:00pm – 7:00pm
Zoom meeting

Join us for Seeing the Forest for the Trees: The Physiological Responses of Temperate Trees in a Warming World! Climate-induced tree migration is altering forest community composition and carbon dynamics. During this talk, Dr. Angie Patterson, Curator of Education and Outreach at Mount Holyoke College’s Miller Worley Center for the Environment, investigates how trees are responding to warming temperatures, which trees may be most tolerant, how these shifts may influence the carbon storage potential of forests, and what our role may be in mitigating these changes.

Dr. Angie Patterson’s interest in understanding the mechanisms behind climate-induced tree migration and plant community shifts inspired her to examine tree physiological responses to temperature, which has been profiled in The Guardian, The Forestry Source, and the National Environmental Education Foundation. For more information about her and her work, visit her on twitter @ColorfulSciGirl or at www.theshotgunscientist.com.

Continuing education credit: event has been approved by the Society of American Foresters (SAF) for one (1) category 1 CFE.
