Carrie Levine’s ground-breaking paper makes big waves!

Congratulations to Carrie Levine for publishing a ground-breaking study! Levine’s paper refutes previous research that was the basis for a lawsuit against restoration efforts¬†following the Rim Fire.

Carrie’s paper, published in Ecological Applications,¬†highlighted critical flaws in previous analyses that led to erroneous conclusions about Sierra forest density.

Her work provides a corrected and accurate description of forest density, which will help inform future management and restoration in the Sierra Nevada. For more information see the Berkeley news report!And the Friday Flash e-news report!
