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 study shows that damage inflicted on trees in Puerto Rico by Hurricane Maria was unprecedented in modern times, and suggests that more frequent big storms whipped up by warming climate could permanently alter forests not only here, but across much of the Atlantic tropics.
  2. When more women are involved in group decisions about land management, the group conserves more - particularly when offered financial incentives to do so, according to a new study.
  3. Thawing permafrost in high-altitude mountain ecosystems may be a stealthy, underexplored contributor to atmospheric carbon dioxide emissions.
  4. A new model quantifies how forest change affects local surface temperatures by altering sunlight-reflection and evapotranspiration properties, and predicts that Brazilian deforestation could result in a 1.45°C increase by 2050.
  5. Researchers warn of the effects of summer drought and competition for ground water.
