Lea Johnson is a plant ecologist working on restoration of damaged urban land and applications of ecological science to land management. Johnson has studied a variety of human-altered environments, from highway roadsides to effluent-rich rivers, public parks, and abandoned dumps. In this presentation, she will discuss ecological outcomes of restoration in New York City Park forests, 15-20 years after invasive woody plants (including porcelain berry, multiflora rose, and oriental bittersweet) were removed and native trees were planted.
The meeting is open to non-members.
Registration is not required.
