Drought and Forest Ecosystems

In April 2017, the U.S. Forest Service Office of Sustainability and Climate hosted a webinar focused on drought and forest ecosystems. Scientists discussed how the ecological effects of drought and a changing climate interact with those of wildfire, insects, disease, and other stressors. They also described some tools and approaches that land managers can use as management response options. Researchers used case studies from a variety of forest types, in both the western and eastern United States.
