September 30, 2020: When a Tree Falls: The Fascinating Afterlife of Wood

Date: September 30, 2020

Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us in welcoming Amy Zanne, Ph.D., who is an ecologist at the George Washington University, for a virtual talk about the interplay between the structure of wood itself and the remarkably diverse community of organisms that takes it apart. This event is hosted by the Audubon Naturalist Society as part of the Naturalist Hour series.

Explore the roles of microbes, insects, solar radiation and fire in the breakdown of the trunks and stems that store much of the carbon on Earth. From the tropical rainforests of Australia to the oak forests of the Pyrenees, Dr. Zanne has studied the complex ecology of wood decay around the world.
