December 2015 webinar: Impacts of Deer Browse on Forest Regeneration across the Northern US

Tuesday, December 15, 2015, noon Р1:00 p.m.

Forest managers are greatly concerned about the effects that browsing from white-tailed deer have on forest regeneration processes. Deer can reduce the abundance and composition of trees and herbs through browsing and can alter the habitat availability for a variety of organisms. This webinar will highlight recent research on deer density and its impacts on tree seedling abundance across the northeastern US, with management implications for Lake States forests.
