Part of the Forest Ecology Random Lectures, open to the public.
A recent evaluation undertaken for the European Forest Institute asked how our current understanding of forest systems can help policy makers to balance the apparently competing demands on forest lands. This evaluation will be summarized along with comment on the associated and ongoing policy implementation. Relevance to California of the context and analysis undertaken in this study will be discussed. View Flyer PDF >

The Tree Mortality Data Collection Network was established to bring together scientists and agencies who are conducting field and remote-sensing studies across the Sierra Nevada. In this third workshop we want to tackle the general question of "What now?". Feedback from previous editions of this meeting and recent outreach activities suggest the need to discuss two critical aspects linked to dead trees: 1) Fuel loads, temporal dynamics, flammability and risks; 2) Post-disturbance management: life after drought and death, reforestation and how to deal with tree species current and future needs. This workshop is organized to facilitate the presentation of recent findings via scientific talks and to serve as a iscussion forum for future actions linked to management and policies.
