This webcast session featured Lindsey Rustad, Research Ecologist, USDA Forest Service, Northern Research Station, who introduced current research findings focusing on understanding ecosystem response to global change, using climate-driven changes in Northeastern North American forests. An overwhelming scientific consensus exists that 20th century human activities have induced dramatic and unprecedented changes in the earth’s chemical and physical environment. The webcast session was held on March 26, 2010, and lasts about one-hour.
This inaugural webcast session featured Scott H.
