"California's Redwoods in a Rapidly Changing World'

What does the future hold for California's Redwood forests?  What can we learn from the present and past to predict how they'll respond to intensifying changes today, such as in drought, fire, and climate?  Professor Dawson has been involved with California Redwoods since his undergraduate days.  With one eye to policy and management, his research group investigates the environmental conditions and physiological adaptations that drive redwood distruibution. Using historical and current data along with projected future conditions, he elucidates how these iconic trees have stood the tests of time.
