Drew Peltier gives course on tree mortality at the Highlands Nature Center in Prescott

On February 13, 2020, Drew Peltier, a SICCS postdoc, will talk about a large precipitation manipulation experiment in New Mexico designed to demonstrate how trees die under drought. Participants will learn about the impacts of drought on tree growth, and the physiological processes that drive tree mortality. Drew’s half-day course is entitled “Hotter and Drier: How will Trees Respond to More Extreme and Frequent Drought” and is part of Highlands’ Community Nature Study Series.
