Ecological Forestry in the Context of Climate Change Webinar Series
This webinar is one of a 12-part monthly webinar series tells a story about how small- and large-scale forest disturbances, such as fire, wind, ice storms, hurricanes, sea-level rise, flooding, introduced and endemic forest pests, and others, impact forest ecosystems. The series will also examine ecological silviculture and climate adaptation approaches to help inform forest and wildlife management.
Series topics will be applicable to biologists, foresters, land managers and planners, and other natural resource practitioners working in Federal, State, Tribal, and local government agencies, and non-government and private organizations, with an interest in the intersection of climate change adaptation, forest ecology, and wildlife habitat management.
Webinars will take place on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 1:00-2:00 pm ET. Each month's presentation topic is intended to build upon the prior webinar in order to tell a cohesive story about forest disturbance and climate change impacts on forest ecosystems and provide silvicultural and adaptation options for natural resource management.
Webinars are presented in a Zoom format. You must register in advance. Registration is required for all webinars in the series.
Stories about how small- and large-scale forest disturbances, such as fire, wind, ice storms, hurricanes, sea-level rise, flooding, introduced and endemic forest pests, and others, impact forest ecosystems. Recorded webinars from the series are available.
This webinar series is sponsored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) - Forest Ecology Working Group (FEWG), Science Applications and Migratory Birds Programs, and the National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) together with the USDA Northern Forests Climate Hub and the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS), a collaborative, multi-institutional partnership led by the Forest Service.
