October 2014 - International Forest Research

Continuing advances in communication technology make talking with someone across the globe much easier.  Improved international exchanges bring the foods, fashions, cultures, and ideas of other lands to our doorsteps.  Issues such as climate change and the damaging impacts of invasive species are affecting or have the potential to affect all nations.  Given this scenario, it makes sense for scientists to work together on addressing natural resource issues in an international forum.  This month, we feature a scientist, research, a product, and a partnership involving international forest research.
