Presenter

Louise Loudermilk, Ph.D., Research Ecologist, US Forest Service Southern Research Station

 The Path Back

 

Webinar Presentation Abstract

Do deciduous midstory oaks on xeric sandhill sites hurt or help longleaf pine seedlings? Intuitive or blasphemy? New research (Loudermilk et al. 2016) suggests that the presence of midstory oaks on xeric sandhill sites can significantly improve microsite conditions for young (< 2 year old) longleaf pine seedlings by reducing soil temperature and lowering moisture loss due to evaporation. Over longer timescales, the authors suggest that understanding and managing for the facilitative roles of native midstory oaks may be important for longleaf pine forest sustainability during droughts, wildfires, and hurricanes. Join the webinar to learn more about this facinating research and chat with Louise Loudermilk, lead author of the publication.
