In this talk, Dr. Jillian Gregg will discuss her work determining the effect of multiple pollutants and elevated temperature, CO2 and nitrogen deposition in NYC on cottonwood clones grown in urban and rural environments. These are the results from her dissertation research at Cornell University that ultimately became a cover story in Nature Magazine.
