Ecological Forestry in the Context of Climate Change
A webinar series hosted by the National Fish and Wildlife Service and the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science.
This 12-part monthly webinar series tells a story about how small- and large-scale forest disturbance, 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.
UNDERSTANDING CLIMATE SMART FORESTRY IN PRACTICE
The series is jointly hosted by The Forest School at the Yale School of the Environment, the USDA Northeast Climate Hub, and the USDA Southeast Climate Hub, and co-sponsored by the Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture.
Climate-smart forestry has become a buzzword across the forestry sector and beyond. In this webinar series, we will learn from practitioners and researchers about how they put climate-smart forestry into practice. We will also learn how forests can be managed to enhance their carbon storage capabilities and/or increase their resilience to the impacts of climate. We will hear from speakers from public sector organizations, nonprofits, researchers, and academics from across the U.S., as well as practitioners “on-the-ground.”
