Preserving Forests in New England – Insights from Japan and Europe

With Robert A. Askins, PhD, Professor of Biology, Connecticut College

The biological diversity of New England’s deciduous forests is threatened by habitat fragmentation, increasing homogeneity of the vegetation, and the loss of top predators. The future of deciduous forests will be shaped by climate change and the introduction of insects and pathogens that decimate particular species of trees. Robert Askins will speak of the major threats to our local forests and new insights for their protection from studies of remarkably similar forests in East Asia and Europe.
