Monthly Presentation (Wednesday, April 18 at 7:30 PM)by Dr. Margaret Brittingham

Marcellus Shale Exploration and Development in Core Forest Habitat: Effects on Forest Habitat and Birds

North-central Pennsylvania contains one of the largest blocks of core forest within the mid-Atlantic region. These core forests overlay the Marcellus shale where resource extraction has increased exponentially and is projected to continue for at least the next 40 years. She will discuss landscape change associated with shale gas development on public and private land within the first 5 years of shale gas development and research on initial response by forest bird communities to these changes. She will also discuss wildlife use of pipelines and potential strategies for reducing negative effects of shale gas development on forest habitat and wildlife. Dr. Brittingham is a Professor of Wildlife Resources in the College of Agricultural Sciences at The Pennsylvania State University. Her research focuses on avian ecology, specifically the effects of habitat fragmentation on bird populations, incorporating wildlife needs into forest management plans, and managing for wildlife on private lands.
