Here comes another dismal science forecast, with human carbon emissions due to rise this year.
Accelerating climate change is likely to result in growing forest carbon emissions, with serious consequences both for the creatures that find shelter there and the global atmosphere.
Three new studies confirm the value of trees to the planet and underscore the dangerous rate of loss.
The Congo project is fueling conflict over land, threatening local residents and failing to slow deforestation, researchers say.
Variety is not just life’s spice but its support system. However, it may not be so simple for mixed forests, researchers say.
Scientists show how different the world would be without a sprinkling of wind-borne fine particles from Africa that fertilize oceans and forests.
California’s drought has already imperiled many of its trees, and within 80 years climate change could destroy the evergreen forests of the entire U.S. Southwest.
A new study shows that political will is all that is needed to stop the chainsaws and bulldozers that are destroying tropical forests and contributing to global warming.
Mapping the density of forests reveals that there are far more trees on the planet than previously thought -- but humans are destroying 15 billion a year.
Many Northern Hemisphere forests face destruction as climate change brings both fiercer droughts and higher temperatures.
