Forest Carbon Coalition presentsSetting the Stage: Distinguishing Science from FalsehoodsThe truth about Carbon, Wildfire, and Biodiversity
Join panelists Drs. Bev Law, Chad Hanson, and Monica Bond for presentations on carbon capture and storage, the role of forests, and the real steps needed to reduce carbon emissions by 40% by 2030; the importance of wildfire and how best to protect communities; and an overview of post-fire habitat and biodiversity.
Webinar Registration Required
Dr. Beverly (Bev) Law is a professor emeritus at Oregon State University where she studies terrestrial ecosystem processes and global change ecology. She is an American Geophysical Union Fellow and Aldo Leopold Fellow. Dr. Law’s research focuses on the effects of climate change, fire, and management on ecosystem carbon and water cycling, addressing issues such as vulnerability of forests to drought-related mortality, and ecological implications of human actions intended to minimize drought and fire effects. She is an author or co-author of over 200 peer-reviewed publications.
Dr. Chad Hanson co-founded the John Muir Project in 1996. He first became involved in national forest protection after hiking the 2,700-mile length of the Pacific Crest Trail witnessing firsthand the devastation caused by rampant commercial logging on national forests. Dr. Hanson earned his Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of California at Davis in 2007, with a research focus on forest and fire ecology and the rare wildlife species that depend upon post-fire habitat in forests of the Sierra Nevada and elsewhere in the western U.S. He has published an extensive list of scientific research papers and books on forest and fire ecology, burned forest as essential habitat for wildlife, and fire history and trends.
Dr. Monica Bond is a Wildlife Biologist and Principal Scientist at the Wild Nature Institute. Dr. Bond focuses on population ecology, habitat selection, and social behavior of wildlife. She has conducted field research and published numerous papers on gray-tailed voles, Western Burrowing Owls, Spotted Owls, Black-backed Woodpeckers, arboreal salamanders, northern elephant seals, Hawaiian monk seals, eastern white-bearded wildebeests, and Masai giraffes. Research interests also include fire ecology of Spotted Owls & Black-backed Woodpeckers.
