Sustainable Management of Central Hardwood Ecosystems and Landscapes


[photo:] A landscape dominated by oak and oak-pine forest in the Ozark Highlands of southern Missouri.We are finding new information and developing modeling tools for land managers, planners, and owners to assess the effects of alternative land management practices and natural disturbances on a range of human and ecological benefits.  We are linking models that span ecosystems, landscapes, and global climate to consider potential effects of climate change on forests and wildlife in the central United States.
