Maples and Climate Change

Zoom Seminar

Thursday November 4, 2021


As our planet warms and becomes more variable, temperate forests will experience more frequent false springs and droughts. What do these manifestations of climate change mean for the genus Acer?


This seminar was taught by Jake Grossman, Visiting Assistant Professor at Swarthmore College where he teaches courses on ecology, plant biology, and global change biology. His love for the genus Acer was nurtured by a two-year post doctorate fellowship at the Arnold Arboretum where he worked with the Arboretum’s renowned Acer collection.
