Forests Adrift: Currents Shaping the Future of Adirondack Forests
Charles D. Canham is senior scientist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, New York. Canham studies the dynamics of forest ecosystems and how they respond to a wide range of human impacts. Using field research, novel statistical methods and computer models, Canham predicts forest response to factors including climate change, introduced pests and pathogens, logging regimes and air pollution. His recent book published in 2020, Forests Adrift: Currents Shaping the Future of Northeastern Trees, focuses on the future of northeastern forests.
