Integrated studies of hemlock and hemlock wooly adelgid launched

HWA Hemlock

Across the eastern United States, hemlock is being killed slowly by the hemlock woolly adelgid, and rapidly by pre-emptive salvage logging. Investigators from the Harvard Forest, Harvard University, University of Bayreuth, University of California at Irvine, University of Massachusetts, University of New Hampshire, University of Vermont, and the Woods Hole Research Center have begun a long-term experimental study on how the loss of hemlock will effect plant physiology, forest biodiversity and community structure, ecosystem dynamics, carbon storage, and stream hydrology.
