David Foster on Conservation in New England

IMG_4303I had the pleasure to video-tape David Foster from Harvard Forest speaking on New England Conservation in the Era of Global Change.  Fantastic!  His presentation was sponsored by Kestrel Land Trust and the Environmental Studies Department at Amherst College.  Check out Wildlands and Woodlands website as well.  I’ve included a couple of very cool graphs below (click on them to enlarge), as well as the video.  Enjoy!
