Pizza with a Scientist: Climate Change and Trees with Jake Grossman

Join your fellow New England Science Writers on the evening of Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019, for a small-group discussion about the potential effects of climate change on trees in the Arnold Arboretum. We’ll be meeting with Jake Grossman, a Putnam Fellow at the Arb who studies how the evolution of temperate trees, such as aspens and maples, has shaped their capacity to survive hot and dry conditions. Jake is using this information to forecast the vulnerability of these trees to ongoing climate change.

Tuesday, January 15, 2019, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Arnold Arboretum
Weld Hill Research Building, Walnut Conference Room
1300 Centre St., Roslindale, MA

Space is limited and the pizza is on us; RSVP to reserve your seat!
