The original reformatted archive of the October 2013 ForestConnect webinar “Eastern Forest Ecosystem Stressors” had an audio corruption about 27 minutes into the recording. My thanks to the viewer who noticed the glitch. That audio corruption has been corrected and reloaded; the corrected URL is below. Details of the webinar follow for those seeking additional information.
October 16, 2013. Eastern forest ecosystem stressors: Deer, Invasive Plants, and Earthworms. Presented by Dr. Bernd Blossey, Cornell University, Department of Natural Resources.
There are multiple stressors that impact eastern forest ecosystems, including deer, invasive plants and invasive earthworms. This webinar will examine the interactive effects of these stressors on herbaceous and wood plant species, and the dynamics of the plant populations. The interactions of the stressors will be described. Management recommendations and assessment tools will include a description of the use of sentinel oaks to assess deer impacts.
