The U.S. Embassy in Moscow and American Center invite you to a special lecture «Siberia’s high-latitude forests» by Fulbright Core Scholar Claire G. Williams (Bridgwater), Ph.D.
What do we each like best about high-latitude Siberia’s conifer forests, or taiga? Some people might say wildlife, fishing, clean water and fresh air. Others might say favorite foods: making ukha, harvesting berries or seaweed or maybe eating cedar nuts with honey. Come with us, a research team, as we work in central Siberia’s forests near the Yenisei River and show how surprisingly connected the taiga is to the rest of the world.
