Dr. Gregory McGee is a research professor at SUNY college of Environmental Science and Forestry. He will give a lecture on the effects of forest management practices and land-use on forest biodiversity and ecosystem processes, specifically in epiphytic mosses and lichens. Forest ecosystem managers are developing strategies to reestablish key stone structures in managed forests and to understand the impacts that regular and, sometimes, heavy canopy removals have on wildlife utilization of the structures.  This presentation will focus on current understanding of the role that large, live trees play in northeastern temperate forests for maintaining biodiversity of epiphytic mosses, liverworts, lichens, and the invertebrates that inhabit these substrates, and will discuss the need for further, focused research on arboreal communities in the Northeast.
