        Warming Climate and Invasive Species

        This video segment adapted from the College of Menominee Nation examines the relationship between climate change and the spread of insects and plant diseases, especially as it relates to the Menominee Indian Tribe's forest, located in northeast Wisconsin. Menominee descendants explain that as typical weather patterns are being interrupted, changes occur that threaten the growth of the forest that the Menominee manage for both current and future generations. Threats include invasive species such as beech scale insects that carry disease and tent caterpillars that attack the trees.
