2017 MAINE LAKES CONFERENCE
7:30 am to 4:00 pm, Saturday, June 24, 2017
Wells Conference Center, University of Maine at Orono
Distinguished Professor Dr. Ivan Fernandez of the Climate Change Institute and the School of Forest Resources at the University of Maine will discuss the Forest-Freshwater Connection, and the role forests play in climate change adaption, at the 47th Annual Maine Lakes Conference on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at the University of Maine at Orono.
Dr. Fernandez is interested in how we are developing adaptation strategies for managing ecosystem response to climate change, particularly as it relates to terrestrial ecosystems and the freshwater resources they encompass. Along with understanding how we can accommodate the changes that have already taken place, and those anticipated in the future, he is also interested in how we can identify and promote the new ecological and economic opportunities that the inevitable change will provide.
