Lecture: Wayne D. Shepperd: Managing Front Range Ponderosa Pine Forests
Forest ecosystems in the Colorado Front Range have evolved to thrive in the unique climatic conditions of the region and natural disturbance regimes that existed prior to European settlement. Knowledge of how forests were structured in the past and the factors that affect their establishment and growth is essential to their management. Dr. Wayne D. Shepperd is a research silviculturist at the U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station in Fort Collins. He holds degrees in outdoor recreation and silviculture. He has been with the Forest Service since 1969. The author of more than 100 research publications, he is a recognized expert on the ecology, growth and management of Rocky Mountain forests.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Florissant Fossil Beds.
