Andrews Forest Monthly Meeting, Jan 8

Friday, January 8, 2021

For our Winter 2021 meetings (Jan, Feb, March) we are discussing fire. The 2020 fire season will leave its mark on ecosystems of the western Cascade Mountains, inside and outside the boundaries of the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest and LTER site. Our history of fire-related research and long-term inquiry contribute to our existing knowledge of fire in the region and provide us a unique opportunity to understand the consequences of these large fires on our complex mountain landscape. With these talks we hope to spark further discussions among the research community.
