Saladyga, T., and Maxwell, R. S. (2015). Temporal Variability in Climate Response of Eastern Hemlock in the Central Appalachian Region. Southeastern Geographer, 55(2), 143-163.
Concord University students Chance Raso ('15) and Katie Testerman ('16) assisted Dr. Saladyga in collecting fire-scarred tree samples at Spring Mountain in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania (see Dr. Saladyga's research). Katie also recorded bird sounds at multiple sites across the study area, which she will use to assess species composition within different forest types. Chance will be starting the graduate program in Geography at Virginia Tech in the fall of 2015.
Geography students Terry Hatfield (left) and Chance Raso (right) work with Dr. Saladyga to collect samples of pitch pine at Babcock State Park in Fayette County, West Virginia. The samples will be used to reconstruct the disturbance history of a rock outcrop pine forest (see Dr. Saladyga's research).
