David Foster, along with Kristina Stinson, Dave Orwig and other research staff at the Harvard Forest will conduct a new undergraduate course in Spring 2010 - Freshman Seminar 21w : Research at the Harvard Forest: Global Change Ecology-Forests, Ecosystem Function, the Future.

This course explores state-of-the-art research, tools and measurements used to investigate and predict climate change through ongoing studies at the Harvard Forest's 3,000 acre outdoor laboratory in Petersham, MA. The seminar consists of three weekend-long field trips (Friday evening-Sunday) to the Harvard Forest and a final on-campus meeting. Students develop skills for evaluating, discussing, and presenting the ecological evidence for climate change, including feedbacks between forests and the atmosphere and long-term impacts on forest ecosystems. Freshmen may apply starting on Friday, December 4th at 9:00 AM, ending on Tuesday, January 19th at 9:00 AM.
