Yale Forest Forum invotes Somidh Saha from ITAS to discuss resiliency in urban forests

Yale Forest Forum: 

Join us for a lunch talk with Dr. Somidh Saha, leader of the Sylvanus research group from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany. Dr. Saha's talk is entitled: "Combining inter- and transdisciplinary research approaches to increase the resilience of urban forests – lessons learned from the Green-Lung (GrüneLunge) project in Karlsruhe, Germany." In this urban forestry talk, Dr. Saha crosses the divide between research and application, as his team asks the questions of how to apply research in on-the-ground practice.
