Ecological and evolutionary responses of forest trees to a changing world: Lecture

In this talk, Dr. Emily Moran will describe past work investigating the dispersal ability and potential for evolutionary responses in trees and other long-lived plants, and her current projects focusing on how inter- and intra-specific responses of Sierra Nevada pines to changes in temperature and aridity may affect forest dynamics and managment best-practices in the future.

Wildland Fire PM Emission Factor Workshop Summary

Event summary

Description: "The purpose of the workshop was for research scientists, air quality specialists, policy administrators, and others to present and discuss recent advances in research relating to estimation of emission factors for particulate matter (PM) and its constituents (organic carbon, black carbon, etc.) emitted from wildland fires, including wildfires and prescribed burning. The workshop consisted of presentations by attendees and discussions aimed at sharing technical information, evaluating measurement approaches, and suggesting applications to air quality monitoring and policy development."
