The Effect of Anthropogenic Disturbance on a Brockport Campus Woodlot and the Surrounding Landscape

Since the early 1600s, the northeastern United States has been subject to many environmental changes. Human activities and natural processes have exerted substantial impacts on the region’s ecosystems, and transformed forest lands at regional, landscape, and local scales. Land use history, tree pathogens, exotic species, and increased ungulate populations represent direct or indirect consequences of anthropogenic disturbances. The presentation explores a small woodlot on the College of Brockport campus, and the region’s disturbance history, to demonstrate how these factors have affected a forest community at the local scale.

Please note that presentation times are approximate. If you are interested in attending sessions with multiple presentations, please be in the room at the start of the session.
