Katie Flinn, Associate Instructor of Biology and Plant Ecologist at Baldwin-Wallace University, will share the research she and her students have done mapping the abundance and distribution of each tree species based on original land surveys of the county around 1800. She will then discuss which tree species have increased or decreased over time and why.
