University of Alabama Undergraduate research

DRL-member Zach Foley presents his  research on eastern hemlock at the University of Alabama UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH & CREATIVE ACTIVITY CONFERENCE. As part of a larger study to determine the climate (temperature) signal of eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis), we sampled eastern hemlock at two sites: Savage Gulf state natural area in Tennessee and Bankhead national forest in Alabama. In Alabama in particular eastern hemlock has the potential to have an especially strong climate signal due to their location at the very edge of the species range.
