Seminar Series


On the 3rd Wednesday of every month we host a virtual Seminar Series from 9-10 AM, ET.  Each Seminar includes two short talks and time for Q&A.  This is a fantastic opportunity for members of our global network to meet in real-time to share their ForestGEO research. 

NEXT Seminar: Wednesday, April 21, 2021 | 9-10 AM, ET | register here

  • Monique Weemstra: Belowground trait strategies modulate the effects of leaf traits on tree growth in a temperate forest
  • Ryan Mushinski: Using mycorrhizal categories to better define soil nitrogen cycling in temperate forests

Monique Weemstra and Ryan Mushinski, each in the field.
