Revealing a changing forested landscape: Where we have come from, what we have learned, and what's next in long-term ecosystem monitoring.

Virtual Event Thursday, December 17, 2020 - Friday, December 18, 2020

Flooded forest

Long-term ecosystem monitoring provides our community with the means to explore data trends and discover changes happening across the forested landscapes of the Northeast. While manipulation and experimentation is not conducted in monitoring programs, the outcomes from monitoring often provide the basis for new research questions and innovation in techniques and methodology. The 2020 FEMC Conference will explore the major findings of key monitoring programs occurring across northeastern forests, share research discoveries and how the ecosystem has changed, and identify future opportunities and innovations in monitoring.

The annual conference of the Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative provides an important opportunity for communication, exchange of ideas, and expanding collaboration around forest ecosystem management and monitoring in the region.

Who Should Attend

All policy makers, researchers, resource managers, students and other stakeholders who work or are interested in northeastern forested ecosystems.
