Charismatic Megaflora: What Do Old Trees Look Like?

With Neil Pederson, PhD, Ecologist, formerly with Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University, now with the Harvard Forest, Harvard University

For Neil Pederson, a tree that would capture his attention as a younger person is very different from the charismatic specimen that wows him today. What has changed? His understanding of old and the dimensions of time and space as applied to trees. Neil Pederson will share how his assumptions were dashed (more than once) and what he has learned while searching for the oldest trees to obtain the longest possible tree-ring based records of environmental history.
