Erik Jules will present his lecture commemorating his Distinguished Faculty Award for Scholar of the Year on Wednesday, February 7, 2024 at 5:00pm in Goodwin Forum (Nelson Hall East 102). A small reception will follow.

Lecture Title:  How climate change, fire suppression, and invasive species may be reshaping our forests

Synopsis: Erik will describe his research on recent changes to forests in our region, including changes that have resulted from non-native pathogens, climate warming, and fire suppression. Using several long-term studies, the talk will focus on an at-risk, high-elevation pine species and a botanically-rich forested ecosystem in the heart of the Klamath Mountains.

Free and open to students, faculty, staff and members of the local community. Light refreshments provided. 

This is the first of five Distinguished Faculty Lectures that will take place in Spring 2024 semester. See poster for details of future lectures
