Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

Biodiversity and forest cover are declining globally. A detailed knowledge of forest conditions can allow for management aimed at promoting biodiversity and the process that lead to it. Our project aims to provide baseline and long-term data to enable management of UCSC’s forest habitats in ways that can promote biodiversity, track demographic changes of time (recruitment/mortaility), and track the results of management efforts.
