Current issues in long-term monitoring and research of forest ecosystems

This meeting focused on core VMC cooperators who presented information about the status of their monitoring efforts in Vermont. We heard from Beverly Wemple about the paired watershed study, two presentations on different aspects of mercury contamination from Neil Kamman and Eric Miller, and presentations from Sandy Wilmot on forest health and Barbara Schultz (formerly Burns) on Forest Tent Caterpillar. William Keeton shared data from his Vermont Forest Ecosystem Demonstration project.
