This talk will discuss what Save the Redwoods League has learned about how both coast redwood and giant sequoia are responding to the changing climate, with an emphasis on the novel stressors affecting giant sequoia groves.

Kristen Shive is the Director of Science for Save the Redwoods League, where she develops and implements research projects related to both coast redwood and giant sequoia conservation, directs conservation planning, and designs restoration treatments. Shive worked in Yosemite for many years and so has a very special place in her heart for Mono Lake. She achieved an MS in Forestry from Northern Arizona University and a PhD in Environmental Science from UC Berkeley.
