Deer Browse and the Biodiversity Crisis

June 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Jeffrey S. Ward, Ph.D. is sharing his expertise on deer browsing and the biodiversity issue,  and GLT is thrilled to have him here. This presentation will look at how excessive deer browsing, invasive species, and non-native diseases affect wildflowers, tree regeneration, and the health of forests.

The management implications of a range of options to control invasives and browse damage will be presented along with development of local action plans.

Registration is required.

Jeffrey S. Ward, Ph.D., received his BS (forest biology) and MS (silviculture) at The Ohio State University, and after service in the Peace Corps (Guatemala), his PhD (forest ecology) at Purdue University. He is Chief Scientist-Emeritus, Department of Environmental Science and Forestry at The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. His 40 plus years of research have focused on long-term tree population dynamics, forest management, and invasive species control.
