What are The Characteristics of  Resilient Forests? A Discussion of The Mixed Conifer Forests of The  Sierra San Pedro Martir in Northern Baja California.

Presenter: Scott Stephens, Professor of Fire Sciences, UC Berkeley

Description: Scott Stephens synthesizes his findings and experiences from his ten years of experience conducting research in the jeffrey pine-dominated mixed conifer forests of Sierra San Pedro Martir. These forests, which did not experience fire suppression until 1970, exhibit a startling amount of resiliency to fire, drought, and other disturbance events. In this webinar, Professor Stephens describes the characterictics of this unique forest and examines the factors which make it so resilient.
