One of the major research topics at the Harvard Forest concerns the hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), an introduced, aphid-like Adlegid lateral viewinsect from Asia. Currently HWA is threatening eastern hemlock with elimination across its range. While infestation and unimpeded migration of HWA presents a tremendous management problem, it also has provided an unusual opportunity to examine the biological, hydrological, and physical changes associated with the loss of hemlock and its replacement by hardwood species. Subsequently, there are a growing number of scientists focusing on this topic. This website was produced to allow easy access to a concise list of scientists currently pursuing integrated hemlock studies and HWA related research.
