A luxuriant Landscape: Oregon’s working forest landscapes, an ecological perspective

Thursday, February 27, 2014
3:30 pm to 5:00 pm
107 Richardson Hall

In 1792 Captain George Vancouver described the coastal forests of Oregon as a “luxuriant landscape”.  This talk will explore how these forests have changed over the last 200 years, what we know about their current ecological patterns and processes, and how they might be changing in the future.  It will address the ecological implications of Oregon’s forest landscape ownership and management patterns.  The presentation will be based on research from the Pacific Northwest and other forested regions of the world.
