National Geographic story on our Glacier Bay research

The story of Glacier Bay made it to National Geographic - the work of re-establishing the longest running plot network of its kind in the world is of pretty broad interest, and you can read their take on it here:

National Geographic sponsored the work, and I'm greatly indebted to them for their support, as well as Glenn Wright, Sarah Bisbing, and John Krapek, who were along on not only the field portion but intimately involved in the writing and publishing of the data as well.  The project is planned to continue this summer with an expansion of the plots, dating of the trees, and collections to better understand the representative nature of the 101 year record.
