Climate Change and Drought Extremes: Critical Perspective From Ancient Trees in California

How is extreme drought in California connected to climate change and human activities? What can we learn about past and future climate using tree rings from old growth forests in California? In this presentation, Daniel Griffin, Ph.D., and dendrochronologist from the University of Minnesota will connect the dots between humans, climate change, extreme drought, and native plants in the Golden State.
