The climate changes induced by global warming are affecting our natural world in many ways. Dr. Susan Harrison, Department of Environmental Science and Policy, and her team from U.C. Davis have been studying how climate change is influencing the composition of understory plant communities occupying forests along the border between Oregon and California.
The SOCAN October monthly general meeting scheduled for Tuesday October 25th from 6:00 – 7:00pm via ZOOM will feature Dr. Harrison outlining her research on forest understories in the Siskiyous. Harrison will discuss how complex water-temperature interactions and extreme events are impacting individual understory plant species in our dry western forests, including how climate affects post-fire community regeneration.
There is no charge for joining the meeting, but participants must register bit.ly/SOCAN-Harrison
