Technische Universitaet Muenchen In the temperate zones, vegetation follows the change of the seasons. After a winter pause, plants put out new growth in spring.

DOE/Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Examining a long-lived forest, researchers have found that Black Spruce trees, which dominate the northern forests of North America, succumb about five years after being weakened by environmental stresses. Without rejuvenating fire, the dead trees aren't being replaced by new ones. The result will help researchers better understand how climate change affects the health of forests, and how forests affect the severity of climate change. The study...
