December Feature - Forest Inventory and Analysis

December’s dark afternoons inspire reflection on all that we are thankful for and all that we have accomplished over the previous 12 months. This month, we pay homage to the accomplishments of the Northern Research Station’s Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) group and introduce a scientist who learned to love nature in the wilds of South Africa, an interactive report on Missouri forests that enables users to explore FIA data in more unique and dynamic ways, and a partnership that is combining FIA data with Canadian forest inventory data to make predictions about how climate-induced habitat changes may impact tree species distribution.
