Dataset Overview

Hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae) has the potential to change hemlock (Tusga canadensis) forests in New England, and at Harvard Forest in particular. For this project, the investigators surveyed four hemlock-dominated plots in Harvard Forest for community vegetation structure and composition.

This project aimed to link the long-term history of hemlock stands at Harvard Forest to other studies of hemlock response to hemlock woolly adelgid infestation, and to provide a baseline for continued intensive study of hemlock dynamics within the stands.
