Predicting Carbon Storage of Great Lakes Forests in the Year 2050
Forests across North-Central and North-Eastern North America historically have been responsible for most of the continent’s biological carbon storage, helping to slow atmospheric CO2 increases. However, these forests are aging and are beset by a variety of pests and pathogens. In the face of continuing climate change, what does this mean for the future?
This webinar will provide information about:
- Links between forest age, biological and structural complexity, and ecosystem resilience to disturbance
- Current approaches to predicting carbon storage by future forests
- Management options that promote the sustainable delivery of forest ecosystem goods and services
