Title: Anticipating the Hydrologic Consequences of Emerald Ash Borer Invasion in Tribal Forested Wetlands through a Sapflux Network
Speaker: Angela Waupochick, PhD student, UW–Madison Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology.
About the talk: Tribal communities maintain significant landholdings, including black ash–dominated forested wetlands. These systems have not been a priority for management, but anticipated mortality induced by emerald ash borer has prompted tribal managers to seek strategies and prioritize areas for mitigation. Waupochick’s tribal-scale research aims to direct local management by capturing a refined picture of environmental and atmospheric controls for these systems, determine stand hydrology changes following black ash loss, and direct specific management areas for tribal managers.
