Title: Stand dynamics and diversity patterns in patterns in planted and naturally regenerating urban forests
Description: Effective management of urban forests depends on baseline information on both the current and potential future forest conditions, however, urban forest dynamics are poorly understood. This presentation will explore urban forest dynamics by examining patterns of nativity, diversity, and species composition in planted and naturally regenerating urban forests. Examining both natural regeneration and tree planting – the two sources of future trees in urban forests – highlights future canopy conditions and illuminates management interventions needed to steer towards healthy, resilient, and native dominated-urban forest types.
