Scientists Peter Groffman and Lindsey Rustad discuss how winters are changing, consequences and adaptations for forest ecosystems.. The speakers have led research for decades at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, 7.800 acres located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and home to one of the world’s longest-running ecosystem studies. Discover why ice storms are on the rise, how they transform ecosystems, how cold winter temperatures thwart invasive forest pests, and how snowpack helps prevent winter tree injury while protecting soil health, water quality, and forest wildlife.
