Professor Emeritus of Biology & Environmental Studies, Drew University

Sponsored by the Southeast Chapter. Originally presented on May 17, 2021.

New Jersey is blessed with a great diversity of forests and trees. What grows where and why? What part do natural disturbances like fire and windstorms play? Today’s forests are widely threatened by invasive species, canopy logging, forest fragmentation, and deer. How can we restore and protect these ecosystems?. Q&A will follow.
