Abstract

Widespread forest mortality events of many tree species in the last two decades prompt concerns that drought, insects, and wildfire may devastate forests in the coming decades. In this talk, I will give an overview of what we have learned so far about recent drought-induced tree mortality events in the West, covering our current understanding of the physiology, ecology, and predictive capability of these events.

Comments

William Anderegg grew up in western Colorado hiking, backpacking, hunting, and fishing in the forests he now studies. His research focuses on western US forests and climate change. He received his Ph.D. from the Department of Biology at Stanford University and worked as a NOAA Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Utah.
