They did not come in peace.
Old age doesn’t mean ‘frail’.
Equatorial rainforests are actually net emitters of carbon. Young forests in temperate regions are the best carbon sinks on land, new research suggests.
A clonal colony of Aspen stretching over 100 acres is being threatened — and it’s all on us again.
I like trees.
If it ain’t broken, don’t replace it with a powerplant.
But this doesn’t mean we should stop focusing on forests — on the contrary.
Plant a tree and species will come back to thee.
Which is a pity, because they save us a lot of money.
They’re really nice cool places for raising baby birds — or fo rest!
It could start a self-reinforcing loop.
Orange is the new forest.
Filmmaker Samuel Orr took 40,000 still images from his front window in a forest cabin to show how nature changes day by day.
These trees shellfishly used the First Nations’ trash to grow.
A forest’s trees capture carbon not only for themselves, but also engage in an active “trade” of sorts with their neighbors, a new study found. University of Basel botanists found that this process, conducted by symbiotic fungi in the forest’s soil, takes place even among trees of different species.
Some 400 million years ago, during what’s called the late Devonian period, the planet went through a dramatic shift in climate. Over just a few million years, the CO2 levels in the atmosphere dropped 15-fold. Partially or mostly responsible for this phenomenal climate change event were the very first forests which evolved and started claiming the Earth. Until then, plants were less specialized and smaller. We know little of these troublesome times, but we’re learning along the way. The discovery of an ancient 380 million years forest in Norway will definitely help in this endeavor.
Showcased are some of the most amazing designs that mimic nature closely: man-made, but defined by their allegiance to nature.
Recently, we wrote an article about the biggest tree census ever conducted, and the results were pretty grim. Sure, there are some 3 trillion trees on Earth, but the bad news is that there used to be almost twice as many – before humans chipped in. Humanity has cut down 46% of the planet’s trees, and we’re continuing to do
What is the heaviest living creature in the world? It’s not an elephant or a blue whale, the heaviest organism is actually an Aspen. Pando, as it is called, is a clonal colony of a single male quaking aspen; basically, it looks like more trees, but it’s actually just one living creature with one massive underground root system. The plant’s estimated
Divers off the coast of Norfolk have discovered a submerged prehistoric forest, hidden underwater for 10,000 years. The forest was part of Doggerland – a land area which connected Germany and Great Britain up to 8000 years ago. This is a forgotten part of Europe, hidden under 200 meters of water. Divers discovered it after a winter storm shifted thousands of
