Foresters try to emulate natural disturbance through silvicultural practices, but often nature has other ideas, confounding well-implemented prescriptions. Join this two-day exploration of connections between natural disturbance, wildlife habitat, and forest management. After a review of key concepts in disturbance ecology you will focus on fire, wind, and forest management as disturbance agents, with talks from researchers and practitioners on each. They'll close out the event with a handful of on-the-ground case studies related to biotic and abiotic natural disturbances.
