This webinar will be held on February 13th, 2019 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EST using Zoom web conferencing software. This webinar is open to the public.

This webinar will begin with a presentation by Dr. Ivan Fernandez (University of Maine), who will discuss the establishment of the Bear Brook Watershed in Maine (BBWM) and the scientific value, both expected and unexpected, that this long-term, nitrogen-addition study has contributed to forest ecology.

After this talk, CFRU Program Leader Dr. Brian Roth will discuss several long-term studies that have been conducted by the CFRU, starting with an overview of the Austin Pond study (initially established for herbicide trials, but unexpectedly contributing a lot of value to growth and yield modelling) and finishing with an overview of the CFRU’s new Maine Adaptive Silviculture Network (MASN).

Webinar Program: 

2:00 – Welcome (CFRU), The Bear Brook Watershed in Maine: Three Decades of Whole Watershed Experimental Manipulation (Ivan Fernandez)

2:30 – Forty Years of Research at Austin Pond and the Next Generation of Adaptive Silviculture Research at the CFRU (Brian Roth)

2:50 – Q & A with Ivan and Brian
