In the face of a changing climate, carbon sequestration --- the process of capturing, securing, and storing atmospheric carbon dioxide long-term --- is among the most valued and readily measured ecosystem services. In this episode of Verdant Views, host Kevin Moss welcomes David Weinstein, Forest Ecologist and Emeritus Senior Research Associate from Cornell’s Department of Natural Resources & the Environment, Todd Bittner, Director of Natural Areas at Cornell Botanic Gardens, and Mike Roberts, Natural Areas Project Manager. Learn how much carbon the Botanic Gardens’ Natural Areas and other Cornell forests are capturing, how the data was obtained, and what the numbers mean to Cornell’s drive to become carbon neutral.
Verdant Views is a monthly webinar series hosted by Kevin Moss of Cornell Botanic Gardens. Each episode focuses on a different topic related to plants, gardens, conservation, sustainability, and the vital connections between plants and peoples around the world.
