Dr. David George Haskell, Professor of Biology, Sewanee, The University of the South. Author of Pulitzer Prize finalist, The Forest Unseen
The Songs of Trees: Stories from Nature's Great Connectors
David Haskell has won acclaim for eloquent writing and deep engagement with the natural world. Now, he brings his powers of observation to the biological networks that surround all species, including humans. Haskell repeatedly visits a dozen trees, exploring connections with people, microbes, fungi, and other plants and animals. He takes us to trees in cities (from Manhattan to Jerusalem), forests (Amazonian, North American, and boreal) and areas on the front lines of environmental change (eroding coastlines, burned mountainsides, and war zones.)  In each place he shows how human history, ecology, and well-being are intimately intertwined with the lives of trees.

The annual meeting of the cooperators of the Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study provides an important opportunity for communication, exchange of ideas and research plans, along with making new friends. This meeting also provides a perspective on the overall Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study. 

The deadline for registration is Wednesday, June 6th for presentations and Friday, June 29th to attend the meeting without making a presentation. The deadline for registering a presentation is quite firm.

We continue to offer three options for presentations:

  • 2 minute, 1 slide only, “lightning” talks. These presentations may highlight a research result or contain announcements. Announcements of proposals or new research (no results yet) will only be accepted as lightning talks. These talks are strictly limited to one slide with no clicks or animation to pack in more content.
  • 5 minute talks (3 minute presentation with 2 minutes for questions): These are for in-progress research with data to report or for completed studies only.
  • 10 minute talks (8 minute presentation with 2 minutes for questions): These are also for in-progress research with data to report or for completed studies only.

Please be aware that because we avoid concurrent sessions and limit the duration of the meeting, it may be impossible to accommodate all interested speakers. Hence, the SCC discourages presentations that are based on studies being done at other places with no clearly-stated relationship to the Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study.

Registration Deadlines:
With presentation - Wednesday June 6, 2018 (Firm deadline; no exceptions)
Without presentation - Friday, June 29, 2018

We look forward to seeing you in July!
