Latest Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest Stories
Bubbling brooks and streams are a scenic and much loved feature of forest ecosystems, but long-term data suggests that more productive forests might carry considerably less water
While science has often focused on big-scale, global climate change research, a study recently released in the journal Bioscience suggests that long-term, integrated and site-specific research is needed to understand how climate change affects multiple components of ecosystem structure and function, sometimes in surprising ways.
Around the world, the effects of global climate change are increasingly evident and difficult to ignore.
In the northern hardwood forest, climate change is poised to reduce the viability of the maple syrup industry, spread wildlife diseases and tree pests, and change timber resources.
New connection between climate change and acidification of Northeast's forests and streams
Past disturbances, such as logging, can obscure the effects of climate change on forest ecosystems. So reports a study just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
