Postdoc Caitlin gives SBE seminar on climate change and phenology in Acadia

If you’re in the area this Friday, come check out BEAST Lab postdoc Caitlin McDonough Mackenzie’s seminar on campus this Friday, December 1, at 3:00 pm in Norman Smith 101. She’ll be sharing some of her previous research on climate change impacts in Acadia National Park, a theme she’s continuing for her Smith Conservation Fellowship in the BEAST Lab. Caitlin’s dissertation research was a combination of field experiments and historical ecology using herbarium specimens and documents — for her postdoc, she’s getting even further back in time, reconstructing climate’s impacts on alpine and subalpine plants over the last 15,000 years in Maine.
