Biological Sciences Seminar Series

Time: 4:00 pm-5:00 pm

Description:

All are welcome to our last seminar for the fall semester. Dr. Phil van Mantgem of the USGS presents "For whom the bell tolls: processes, patterns and consequences of tree mortality."

Tree mortality is a key demographic process that shapes forest populations. Yet our understanding of this process is poor despite its important influences on ecosystem services such as forest productivity, wildlife habitat and carbon sequestration. In this lecture the audience will learn about the latest research on the mechanisms of tree mortality and how larger-scale patterns of tree mortality are changing in an era of global warming.

Phil van Mantgem is a Research Ecologist with the US Geological Survey, stationed in Arcata, California. Dr. van Mantgem’s research interests include forest dynamics (with an emphasis on climate change impacts), fire ecology and the management of forested ecosystems.
