DOINews: Upcoming Webinar: "Sustaining Forests in the Face of Uncertainty"


Upcoming Webinar: "Sustaining Forests in the Face of Uncertainty”
March 26, 2014 at 3:30pm (ET)
Speaker: Maria Janowiak of Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science

Description: There is rapidly-growing interest in adapting forest ecosystems to changing and uncertain future conditions, but there are relatively few real-world examples of forest adaptation. This presentation will describe a set of forest adaptation resources that can be used by resource managers to incorporate regional information about climate change vulnerability and potential adaptation strategies into on-the-ground management, while meeting a variety of management goals. Examples from public, private, and tribal lands will be highlighted in order to discuss challenges and opportunities for incorporating climate change considerations into forest management.
