November Feature - Foster Resilient, Adaptive Ecosystems

The factors that can impair the health of forest ecosystems are daunting: drought, wildfire, human uses, invasive species, extreme weather events, and changing climatic conditions, to name a few.

This month, we feature a scientist, a product, research and a partnership all related to fostering resilient, adaptive ecosystems.
