Earth in Peril: Leaders Needed
A Student Perspective on Challenges and Leadership Needs for the 21st Century
Students in NR 199, RSENR Stewards, RSENR RGSA, RSENR SAB
The current life expectancy for a Vermonter is 80 years. Assuming that life expectancies won't increase further, this means that our 18 year old student will live to 2076. Our exercise conscious, local/health food oriented students will probably live closer to the end of the century. What changes will they see in this time period and what prospects do they see for this future?
The goal of this session is to hear students voices about their future. What are the big challenges, how do they feel about this, and what solutions do they want to pursue in their next 60 years?
Come hear their stories...

In partnership with the UNH Department of Natural Resources and the Environment, the EcoQuest Education Foundation offers an intensive program of applied field studies in ecology, resource management, and environmental policy. EcoQuest students engage hands-on, in a unique, multidisciplinary, research-oriented program while contributing to New Zealand’s restoration ecology and sustainable resource management initiatives. Students will also take part in sustainable and cooperative living at the EcoQuest Field Centre and learn about New Zealand's rich Maori culture.
The field-oriented delivery happens in a variety of terrestrial and marine ecosystems. Students will travel to many of New Zealand's most majestic environments, which range from sub-tropical forests, to estuaries, to the sub-Antarctic mountains of the Southern Alps. Semester participants have the opportunity to carry out team-oriented, directed-research projects while working closely with a faculty mentor and in association with New Zealand research partners and local communities. EcoQuest has long-term commitments to ecological monitoring of endemic species and ecosystems, as well as projects and initiatives that advance sustainable management of natural resources and habitats.

TITLE: Patterns and Causes of Variation in Harvest Regimes in Eastern Forests
TOPIC: Logging is the overwhelmingly dominant disturbance in eastern forests, accounting for almost twice as much canopy tree mortality as all other causes of mortality, on a regional basis. Charlie will present results of new statistical models for the variation in frequency and intensity of harvest as a function of region, forest type, and a variety of physical, social and economic factors (using very simple metrics). The results
highlight the sea-change in logging practices in eastern forests over the past 50 years, and have important implications for the future of eastern forests.
