Forests and Climate Change

Ecology and Environment

Regents Professor Peter Reich, an MSI PI in the Department of Forest Resources (College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences), was interviewed on Minnesota Public Radio’s Climate Cast program on March 1, 2018. Professor Reich talked about his research into forests and climate change. The program can be found on the MPR website: What’s going on in the Arctic?

Professor Reich’s interview begins at the 6:40 mark.

The Reich group uses MSI resources for a project to develop a new kind of global land computer model. The new model will be based on a plant functional trait approach, as opposed to current models that use a plant function type approach.
