The Harvard Forest is expanding the role of aquatic studies in its research program. Aquatics research integrates hydrology, Aquatics Researchwater quality, and freshwater ecology with ongoing work on forest vegetation, ecosystem function, plant physiology, disturbance history, and climate.

The Forest recently appointed Dr. Betsy Colburn, an aquatic ecologist, to the staff. In addition, construction of a permanent weir, to enhance long-term monitoring on the Harvard Forest research site, is planned for the coming year.
