Community Lecture: In the Line of Fire: Northern Forests Under Threat

Boreal forests cover a third of the planet’s forested land and house an immense amount of carbon in their soils. These ancient forests have waxed and waned with the movement of ice sheets, but rarely faced the pace of environmental changes that exist today. Forest fires have been intensifying every year, with threats to human life and communities, animal habitats, and the climate system itself. Dr. Rogers’ presentation will underscore the importance of these Northern forests, which are increasingly in the direct line of fire from human-caused climate change.

Presented by Dr. Brendan Rogers, Assistant Scientist
