Meet the Northern Forests Climate Hub Fellow: Todd Ontl. Todd's work focuses on helping folks adapt forests to climate change in the Northeast and Midwest. Todd supports natural resource professionals and USDA staff to consider the effects of climate change and has developed adaptation strategies for forest carbon management.
This assessment evaluates the vulnerability of 11 forest ecosystems in the Mid-Atlantic region (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, eastern Maryland, and southern New York) under a range of future climates.
Tools to help professionals consider the potential effects of climate change on forests, and to design actions that can help ecosystems cope under changing conditions.
