Aspen Response To Drought And Climate Change In The 21st Century
Date: Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2015 Time: 12 PM (MT) Speakers: Dr. William R.L. Anderegg, Assistant Professor, Department of Biology, University
William Anderegg is an assistant professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Utah and an Associate Research Scholar at Princeton University. He received his Ph.D. from Stanford University in Biology and his research focuses on the impacts of climate change on western U.S. forests. Recent elevated dieback of aspen after severe droughts in the 2000s has prompted concern about the future of aspen in a changing climate. I will give an overview of what we know and don't know about drought stress on aspen physiology and mortality, and what this means for the future of aspen forests in a changing climate.
