ASCC News & Publications
George Jensen is a first year graduate student working with Dr. Ben Knapp at University of Missouri and Dr. Seth Bigelow at the Jones Center at Ichauway. He will conduct research on the influence of Resistance, Resilience, and Transition treatments on fire behavior and effects in longleaf pine ecosystems.
At the Jones Center at Ichauway, a site dominated by longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) in southwestern Georgia, one of the main climate change effects being considered under the ASCC project is increased temperature and drought stress.
The Washington Post featured ASCC Network climate change specialists and the Cutfoot Experimental Forest ASCC site on the Chippewa National Forest in an article titled "Scientists are trying to save Minnesota's North Woods forest from climate change."
Partners from across the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Forest came together to address challenges created by climate change and to develop the first ASCC site in Canada at the Petawawa Research Forest during a three-day workshop in Pembroke, Ontario.
