Highlights and new directions from 30 years of the Forest's Long-Term Ecological Research Program were the focus of the 2018 Harvard Forest Ecology Symposium, held on March 20 in the Fisher Museum. More than 120 attendees - scientists, students, and forestry/conservation professionals - filled the Museum, with more joining online for the live-stream. Speakers covered issues ranging from carbon cycling and conservation/science policy to forest insect pests and soil microbes.

Additional symposium activities included a poster session, a lunch session with the authors of recent Harvard Forest books, a guided walk through the Hemlock Hospice Art Installation, and a networking dinner for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.

All talks were recorded and are available here, along with abstracts of other current Harvard Forest research.
