Tracking Shifts in Disturbance Regimes – online tool intro webinar

November 3, 2021
Noon – 1 p.m. ET
The Forest Ecosystems Monitoring Cooperative of the University of Vermont is excited to announce the release of the new online tool “Tracking Shifts in Disturbance Regimes.” The tool allows users to track changes, explore trends, and look for shifts in causes of and responses to disturbance regimes across northeastern forests. Specifically, this project focuses on the extent, frequency, and severity of disturbance caused by native and non-native insects and diseases, flooding and high wind events, drought, and fire. Studies exploring the responses to disturbance by macroinvertebrate communities, coldwater fisheries, and invasive plants are also available for users to further investigate how disturbances are impacting northeastern forests.
To use the tool and read the technical report, please visit the project page: https://www.uvm.edu/femc/disturbance/
This webinar will provide further information about using the tool and share results of trend analyses as presented in the technical report.
