UW-Green Bay Wabikon project contributes to global carbon mapping

Tag icon , ,

Over the past half dozen years, faculty, staff and students from UW-Green Bay’s Cofrin Center for Biodiversity have been busy measuring (and re-measuring) more than 50,000 trees at the Wabikon Forest Dynamics Plot near Crandon. The project is led by Profs. Amy Wolf and Bob Howe of Natural and Applied Sciences, and Gary Fewless, curator of the UW-Green Bay Herbarium. This week, a publication in the online journal Biogeosciences demonstrates how results from this work and similar studies at 29 other permanent forest plots around the world can be used to refine satellite estimates of the global carbon distribution in forests. Read the article, written by French ecologist Maxime Réjou-Méchain and co-authors including Wolf and Howe.
