Nothing Succeeds Like Succession

Nick FontaineThere's not much that senior Environmental Studies major Nick Fontaine (left) doesn't know about a certain piece of forested land in Rochester, NH.  For his senior project, Nick studied the property extensively, taking measurements and cataloging virtually every plant and animal species found on the land.  In addition, he researched the ecological history of the property, which has passed in and out of agricultural use several times over the past 300 years.

forest succession, 1700-1910Nick presented his results on Thursday December 11 in a report called "Forest Succession and Land Use History."  He not only reviewed the past history of the land and summarized its current condition, but made predictions about its future evolution.  His major finding was that the forest, currently dominated by oak trees, would come to be dominated by beech trees within another generation if current trends continue.
