Utah State University Forestry Extension hosted this fifteenth "Learn at Lunch" webinar.
Quaking Aspen forests are among the West’s most iconic landscapes. In this month’s Learn at Lunch webinar, three aspen experts will address fire regimes, ecosystem disturbances, and managing for aspen resilience. Douglas Shinneman from the U.S. Geological Survey’s Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science Center will describe a proposed classification framework for aspen fire regimes; Dominik Kulakowski from Clark University will explore possible consequences of altered disturbance regimes in western Quaking Aspen; and Paul Rogers from the Western Aspen Alliance will discuss short- and long-term management considerations for preserving aspen resilience.
