NYT profiles work of conservation biologist Charney

Noah Charney, an assistant professor of conservation biology at the University of Maine, was featured in a profile by the New York Times for his work on understanding and interacting with landscapes. Charney practices reading the land around him — its past, present, potential for the future by picking up on patterns not easily noticed — and encourages others to do the same. He is the author of a 2023 book, titled “These Trees Tell a Story: The Art of Reading Landscapes.”
