Virtual Conference

ASA-CSA-SSSA International Annual Meeting

Science makes new discoveries through systematic study, observation, and experimentation. The central tenet of the science value proposition is that these discoveries should drive innovation, create new opportunities, and improve the human condition. 

 

Unfortunately, current communication systems can fail to deliver new information the “last mile” to the public in a timely, user-friendly fashion. This can limit real-world science applications and the adoption of new technology. Non-scientists are often determining the relevancy, meaning, and potential value of new technologies and partnerships based on incomplete data and partial knowledge. In these confusing times where “fake news” is competing with facts, it has never been more important, nor more urgent, to develop the skills and tools needed to translate scientific knowledge for the public good and to do so with absolute transparency, clarity and 2020 Vision.

 

Join this conversation at the virtual 2020 International Annual Meeting, "Translating Visionary Science to Practice."

Webinar

Managing Soil Quality in Forests

Maintaining forest soil quality is essential to sustainable forest uses, but forest soils, like other soils, can be degraded through improper management. Some forest soils are susceptible to compaction and rutting by heavy equipment, or erosion and sedimentation due to poorly-designed roads. Nutrients and organic matter may be removed in forest products, and cumulative changes in physical and chemical soil properties can affect the environment for soil biota. These concerns and others are typically addressed through planning processes, management guidelines, and forest certification standards. The webinar will provide an overview of forest soil management issues and an introduction to practices that limit or mitigate impacts.
