About the Speaker
Todd Ontl is a Research Scientist and Climate Adaptation Specialist at Michigan Tech University. The focus of his research is understanding the motivations for and implementation of climate adaptation actions on forests across the Midwest and Northeast region (Forest Service Eastern Region footprint). This work is in close collaboration with the Climate Change Response Framework. The Framework aids forest land managers (private, industry, tribal, and local, state, and federal agencies) in understanding the potential effects of climate change impacts relevant to their location, and provides tools to incorporate climate change considerations into on-the-ground management, planning and decision-making activities.
