Disturbance and Ecosystem Services in Forests and Streams


On Thursday, May 2 @ 11am ET, join Cary Institute for a virtual scientific seminar by Dr. Jazlynn Hall, Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies.

Forests are crucial for mitigating the effects of climate change and providing ecosystem services. Global deforestation trends coupled with changing climate and intensifying disturbance regimes threaten the capacity of forests to sequester carbon and regulate other ecosystem processes. In her research, Dr. Hall studies the impacts of global change, human activities, and disturbances on forest ecosystems and subsequent streamflow regime changes. After disturbances such as drought, hurricanes, and wildfires, she determines changes to forest structure and carbon and identifies the relationships between forests, disturbance, and streamflow. In this seminar, Dr. Hall will present results from her research studying forests, disturbances, and ecosystem services in Puerto Rico, the Western United States, and Interior Alaska.

Free and open to all. Registration required via Eventbrite.
