The Mendocino Coast - An Eco-communitarian Conference
Professor Will Russell has announced a new project funded by the Save-the-Redwoods with support from the Mendocino Institute. The project investigates the natural recovery of second-growth coast redwood forests in collaboration with Prof. Joe McBride from UC Berkeley. The purpose of the study is to analyze the development of old-growth stand characteristics, canopy structure, and specific wildlife habitat features, within second-growth stands to address the question: Do second-growth coast redwood stands develop characteristics of structure and composition similar to old-growth stands in the absence of post-harvest?
