Ensuring Healthy Forests in New Jersey – Webinar

August 17, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
NJ United States

A Panelist Discussion and Q&A on managing for healthy New Jersey forest ecosystems. The second in a series of healthy forest webinars.   Join New Jersey Audubon and leading state and national experts for this timely discussion on forest ecology in New Jersey - from the lush Highlands of northern NJ to the unique Pinelands in the south.   REGISTER TODAY for FREE   Our Panelists: Mark Ashton, PhD: Professor of Silviculture and Forest Ecology, Director of Yale Forests, and Senior Associate Dean for The Forest School at the Yale School of the Environment. His research focuses on the biological and physical processes governing the regeneration of natural forests and the mechanisms underlying the diversity of forest ecosystems and their adaptability to climate change. He conducts his long-term research in both temperate and tropical forests and has worked in forests from New England to Sri Lanka and from Canada to Brazil.   Matthew Olson, PhD: Assistant Professor of Environmental Science, Stockton University. His educational background is the ecology and management of forests and woodlands. Matt’s research addresses how trees and forest plant communities respond to environment variation and disturbance. Much of his research focuses on tree regeneration and stand dynamics in managed temperate forests. The goal of Matt’s research to help inform forest management actions, including strategies for adapting to climate change and associated forest health threats.   Richard G. Lathrop Jr., PhD: Johnson Family Chair in Water Resources & Watershed Ecology, Department of Ecology, Evolution & Natural Resources; Director, Grant F. Walton Center for Remote Sensing & Spatial Analysis at Rutgers University. Dr. Lathrop's research program works to integrate insights of ecology and geography with the application of geo-spatial information technology to improve our understanding of coupled human environmental systems. Collaborating with partners, he works to translate that understanding into effective and appropriate techniques to improve ‘on the- ground’ natural resource management and land use planning.   Daniel P. Duran, PhD: Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Science at Rowan University as well as the Naturalist for Scotland Run Park, a 1300-acre nature preserve at the edge of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. He has published research papers on agricultural entomology, biodiversity, and molecular phylogenetics. Dr. Duran has described ten new species of insects, previously unknown to science. He received a B.S. in Environmental Studies from Stockton University in 1998, an M.S. in Entomology from University of Missouri in 2002, and a Ph.D. in Evolution and Ecology from Vanderbilt University in 2010. In between his degrees, he has also worked for the Natural History Museum, London, UK and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama. Dr. Duran is a co-author of the book "A Field Guide to the Tiger Beetles of the United States and Canada, 2nd Edition".   REGISTER TODAY for FREE
