Northern Research Station
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.
Rooted in Research
New Podcast Episode: Mac Callaham, a research ecologist, goes searching in Georgia’s Chattahoochee National Forest for one of Brood X’s most-southern cicada emergences.
