Adaptive Silviculture for Climate Change Project Now Underway
A new study is underway in New Hampshire's northwoods that will further our understanding of management options for climate change adaptation. The Adaptive ...
Managing Forests for Birds Video Series
A new video series by the Ohio Bird Conservation Initiative highlights the importance of proper forest management in improving a diversity of habitat for birds ...
Forest Service Report Highlights Restoration Progress Made Despite Growing Challenges
The U.S. Forest Service has increased the pace and scale of forest restoration by nine percent since 2011, according to a report released today. The ...
Carbon-nitrogen interactions regulate climate-carbon cycle feedbacks: results from an atmosphere-ocean general circulation model.pdf
Inclusion of fundamental ecological interactions between carbon and nitrogen cycles in the land component of an atmosphere-ocean general circulation model ...
Bias in the attribution of forest carbon sinks
A substantial fraction of the terrestrial carbon sink, past and present, may be incorrectly attributed to environmental change rather than changes in forest ...
Cumulative Effects of Fire and Fuels Management on Stream Water Quality and Ecosystem Dynamics
Prescribed fires and wildland fire-use are increasingly important management tools used to reduce fuel loads and restore the ecological integrity of western ...
Climate change and disruptions to global fire activity
Future disruptions to fire activity will threaten ecosystems and human well-being throughout the world, yet there are few fire projections at global scales and ...
Conservation Biology: Predicting Birds’ Responses to Forest Fragmentation
Understanding species’ ecological responses to habitat fragmentation is critical for biodiversity conservation, especially in tropical forests. A detailed ...
Effects of Climatic Variability and Change on Forest Ecosystems: General Technical Report PNW-GTR-870 December 2012
This report is a scientific assessment of the current condition and likely future condition of forest resources in the United States relative to climatic ...
CO2 emissions from land-use change affected more by nitrogen cycle, than by the choice of land-cover data
The high uncertainty in land-based CO2 fluxes estimates is thought to be mainly due to uncertainty in not only quantifying historical changes among forests, ...
Divergent phenological response to hydroclimate variability in forested mountain watersheds
Mountain watersheds are primary sources of freshwater, carbon sequestration, and other ecosystem services. There is significant interest in the effects of ...
Classification of Climate Change-Induced Stresses on Biological Diversity
Conservation actions need to account for and be adapted to address changes that will occur under global climate change. The identification of stresses on ...
Carbon Dynamics of the Forest Sector
Main points: The basic ecosystem science behind carbon dynamics in forests is relatively straightforward (really!).This science doesn’t seem to be applied very ...
Can forest management be used to sustain water-based ecosystem services in the face of climate change?
Forested watersheds, an important provider of ecosystems services related to water supply, can have their structure, function, and resulting streamflow ...
Carbon Sequestration in Two Created Riverine Wetlands in the Midwestern United States
Wetlands have the ability to accumulate significant amounts of carbon (C) and thus could provide an effective approach to mitigate greenhouse gas accumulation ...
Drought, disease, defoliation and death: forest pathogens as agents of past vegetation change
The temperate and boreal forests of Europe and North America have been subject to repeated pathogen (fungal disease and phytophagus insect) outbreaks over the ...
Conservation value of forests attacked by bark beetles: Highest number of indicator species is found in early successional stages
Heavy natural disturbance in large protected areas of former commercial forests increasingly evokes European parliaments to call for management intervention ...
Effects of Management on Carbon Sequestration in Forest Biomass in Southeast Alaska
The Tongass National Forest (Tongass) is the largest national forest and largest area of old-growth forest in the United States. Spatial geographic informa- ...
CO2 emissions from forest loss
Deforestation is the second largest anthropogenic source of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, after fossil fuel combustion. Following a budget reanalysis, the ...
Carbon loss from an unprecedented Arctic tundra wildfire
Arctic tundra soils store large amounts of carbon (C) in organic soil layers hundreds to thousands of years old that insulate, and in some cases maintain, ...
Brownness of organics in aerosols from biomass burning linked to their black carbon content
Atmospheric particulate matter plays an important role in the Earth’s radiative balance. Over the past two decades, it has been established that a portion of ...
Elevation-dependent influence of snow accumulation on forest greening
Rising temperatures and declining water availability have influenced the ecological function of mountain forests over the past half-century. For instance, ...
Decline of Leaf Hydraulic Conductance with Dehydration: Relationship to Leaf Size and Venation Architecture
Across plant species, leaves vary enormously in their size and their venation architecture, of which one major function is to replace water lost to ...
Combined climate and carbon-cycle effects of large-scale deforestation
The prevention of deforestation and promotion of afforestation have often been cited as strategies to slow global warming. Deforestation releases CO2 to the ...
Carbon Mitigation by Biofuels or by Saving and Restoring Forests?
The carbon sequestered by restoring forests is greater than the emissions avoided by the use of the liquid biofuels.
DO CARBON OFFSETS WORK? THE ROLE OF FOREST MANAGEMENT IN GREENHOUSE GAS MITIGATION
As forest carbon offset projects become more popular, professional foresters are providing their expertise to support them. But when several members of the ...
Challenges in the conservation, rehabilitation and recovery of native stream salmonid populations: beyond the 2010 Luarca symposium
– In May 2010, I chaired a session on challenges to salmonid conservation at the international symposium ‘Advances in the population ecology of stream ...
Carbon sequestration in the U.S. forest sector from 1990 to 2010
From 1990 through 2005, the forest sector (including forests and wood products) sequestered an average 162 Tg C year1 . In 2005, 49% of the total forest sector ...
Don't Blame the Beetles
Bark beetles have devastated western forests, but that may not mean more severe fires.
Challenges of ecological restoration: Lessons from forests in northern Europe
The alarming rate of ecosystem degradation has raised the need for ecological restoration throughout different biomes and continents. North European forests ...
