Science Daily Forest News

Forest Biomes. Read all about forests, including forest ecology, carbon uptake, and how human activities are affecting forests.
  1. A new discovery is providing scientists a better understanding of how rainfall is shared beneficially by the plant community and the human population, in addition to the effects of climate change.
  2. Ever wondered what makes a soil, soil? And could soil from the Amazon rainforest really be the same as soil from your garden?
  3. New research suggests that plant respiration is a larger source of carbon emissions than previously thought, and warns that as the world warms, this may reduce the ability of Earth's land surface to absorb emissions due to fossil fuel burning.
  4. European forest managers can have their cake and eat it, because according to a new study maximizing timber production in a forest does not necessarily have to come at a cost of reduced species diversity or the capacity to regulate climate change by the same forest. However most European forests fall well below their possible maximum levels of these three capacities.
  5. Deforested areas of the Amazon Basin have a limited ability to grow new trees because of changes in climate, according to a study.
