Reading the Land through Climate Change: Local Plant Adaptation Past, Present, and Future

Date: March 24, 2017
Location: Morris Arboretum, Philadelphia, PA, UNITED STATES
Organizer: Jan McFarlan
Description: Instructor: Mark Demitroff
Adjunct Professor, Stockton University
Ancient climate change profoundly influenced the character of the flora that we cherish today.
Local ecosystems and the native plants that depend upon them owe much of their inheritance to
cold, nonglacial processes that characterized much of the last 2.5 million years. We will reconstruct
local past environments through geology, climatology, and plants to help develop a long-term view
of ever-changing plant adaptation. We will then be better able to preserve and manage habitat
in the future. Mark is a board director for the U.S. Permafrost Association and for South Jersey
Culture and History Center. He lectures internationally and publishes on ancient climate change
and permafrost, and Quaternary Science. A native of the Pinelands, Mark consults and provides
expert witness testimony as a New Jersey Certified Tree Expert. This course carries 5.75 CEUs for
ISA certified arborists (S=3, P=1, M=1.75).
