HSU Geography Announces China/Tibet Field Studies Program for Summer 2019

As part of its continuing global outreach, the HSU Geography Department is again offering the China/Tibet Field Studies Program. Since the beginning of the program in 2000 HSU undergraduate students have pursued a wide range of topics while exploring and documenting the rapidly changing natural and cultural landscapes of these regions. The design and implementation of a community service project on the Tibetan Plateau will be a hallmark of next year’s program.

Open to all majors, prerequisite courses are scheduled for Spring 2019.

For more information, contact Tony Rossi, program director at

Alma Zechman Forestry & Wildland Resources

The Forestry and Wildland Resources Department is happy to announce the final guest lecture in the 2018 L.W. Schatz Forestry Seminar Series:

Tree mortality, uncertainty, and forest conservation in the West

Speaker: Dr. Phil van Mantgem is a Research Ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Arcata, California. Dr. van Mantgem’s research interests include forest dynamics, fire ecology, and the management of forested ecosystems. Since 1995 he has been studying (and enjoying) forests in California and beyond.

Topic: Tree mortality is a key process that shapes forest populations. Yet our understanding of tree mortality is poor in spite of its influence on important services provided by forests, such as soil stability, wildlife habitat, and carbon sequestration. In this lecture the audience will learn about the latest research on tree mortality, how patterns of tree mortality appear to be changing in the western U.S., and potential management responses to these changes.

Date: Wednesday, May 2
Time: 5-6 pm
Location: Founders Hall 118
