The biological diversity of the deciduous forests in eastern North America is threatened by habitat fragmentation, increasing homogeneity of the vegetation, and the loss of top predators. Understanding the history and ecology of deciduous forests is critical for sustaining productive forests and preventing the loss of biological diversity. Dr. Robert Askins will describe studies of remarkably similar forests in East Asia and Europe, which provide new insights about how to protect forests in North America.
