Harvard Forest in Finland, and Vice Versa


Harvard Forest ecologists Elizabeth Crone, Josh Rapp and Keala Cummings recently visited Oulanka National Park in northeastern Finland to study how changes in forest cover and river flow affect forest wildflower populations. Their collaborator, Dr. Anne Jäkäläniemi, a botanist with the Finnish Forest and Park Service, will be in residence at Harvard Forest through the end of October. In addition to her plant research, Anne is writing a series of columns about life in the United States for her local Finland newspaper.
