Annual growth rings in trees tell us more than climate history; they can also document the rise and fall of human industrial activities.
The scale and pattern of damage to the Puerto Rican forests suggest a complex interplay between wind, land, and sea.
New research suggests that moist tree heartwood produces methane and emits the greenhouse gas to the atmosphere.
It depends on where, when, and how.
Rising temperatures that reduce snow cover leave soils vulnerable to frost, reducing silicon uptake by trees, with potential effects on downstream ecosystems.
New research evaluates the ability of coastal foliage to influence the ocean's pH.
Recent beetle epidemics have driven tree die-offs across North America, and previous studies predicted an increase in annual streamflow would follow—but a new study shows this may not be the case.
