Ancient climate change profoundly influenced the character of the flora that we cherish today. Local ecosystems and the native plants that depend upon them owe much of their inheritance to cold, nonglacial processes that characterized much of the last 2.5 million years. We will reconstruct local past environments through geology, climatology, and plants to help develop a long-term view of ever-changing plant adaptation. We will then be better able to preserve and manage habitat in the future. Mark Demitroff is a board director for the U.S. Permafrost Association and for South Jersey Culture and History Center. He lectures internationally and publishes on ancient climate change and permafrost, and Quaternary Science. A native of the Pinelands, Mark consults and provides expert witness testimony as a New Jersey Certified Tree Expert. This event is presented by Morris Arboretum.
