Borneo’s logged forests are buzzing with life and have unrealized conservation potential.
Arrays of technologies and innovative research are helping scientists better understand forests, fires, and the future of our shared landscape.
Refugia repopulate forests after fires, but climate change is making these woodlands increasingly unpredictable.
Root-filled soils are hot spots of nutrient cycling and carbon storage. New research finds that the world has lost millions of cubic meters of rooted soil volume—and we’re on track to lose much more.
Undisturbed tropical rain forests are experiencing more frequent droughts, but the ecosystems are isolated and difficult to assess. Scientists are using remote sensing to expand the depth and scope of monitoring efforts.
New research provides a 200-year reconstruction of interannual rainfall in the Amazon basin using oxygen isotopes preserved in tree rings in Ecuador and Bolivia.
A novel calculation reveals how much power plants need to move water through their stems—and how plants gain energy from the process.
The city prioritizes equity and inclusion as it incorporates tree coverage into climate resiliency efforts.
Insects that eat plant leaves could change the local atmosphere, but current climate models do not account for this impact.
California has lost 7% of its forest cover to climate change over the past 25 years.
