The Living Lab - Mt. St. Helens and its Ecosystem Rebirth
Date: Tue, 06/02/2020 Broadcast: 01
Remark: The violent eruption of the Mt. St. Helens volcano in 1980 forever changed the immediate ecosystem. Yet four decades after that event, the continuing regeneration of plant and animal life around the blast zone is on display, becoming its own research area for scientists worldwide to study. Rod Bain looks at rebirth of the Mt. St. Helens ecosystem in this edition of "Agriculture USA".
PARTICIPANTS: Rod Bain. U.S. Forest Service researcher Charlie Crusafulli. Retired Forest Service researcher Fred Swanson.
