(ENVS Lunch & Learn) Science and Conservation

Dr. John Hagan established Manomet’s Forest Conservation Program, based in Brunswick, Maine, in 1997. He has led a variety of field studies on forestry and biodiversity in the region and has helped transform how the forestry sector thinks about protecting biodiversity. His early work on birds and forestry showed that clearcuts can be important habitat for many species of conservation concern. He has also shown that modern forest management threatens the persistence of many less charismatic species, such as lichens and mosses that depend on late-successional or old-growth forest. He has worked closely both with timber companies and environmental groups. With a series of grants from the National Commission on Science for Sustainable Forestry, he has helped develop a simple, science-based approach to selecting sustainability indicators that include society’s economic, social, and environmental values. Dr. Hagan received a B.S. in Environmental Science from Texas Christian University, an M.S. in Wildlife Management from North Carolina State University, and a Ph.D. in Zoology, also from North Carolina State.
