Discovery Adds New Species a Lab's Ghoulish Insect Menagerie

A horrifying insect soap opera with vampires, mummies and infant-eating parasites plays out on the stems and leaves of oak trees every day, and an evolutionary biologist found the latest player, a ...

Supercomputing Study Breaks Ground for Tree Mapping, Carbon Research

A new method for mapping the location and size of trees growing outside of forests helped scientists discover billions of trees in arid and semi-arid regions and lays the groundwork for more accurate ...

Fuels, Not Fire Weather, Control Carbon Emissions in Boreal Forest

A team has found that the amount of carbon that burns in wildfires in western boreal forests depends more on available fuels than on fire weather such as drought conditions, temperature, or ...

Laser Technology Measures Biomass in World's Largest Trees

Laser technology has been used to measure the volume and biomass of giant Californian redwood trees for the first time, records a new ...

Researchers have detected DNA from ambrosia beetles that were trapped in recent tree resin for less than seven ...

Evolution of Pine Needles Helps Trees Cope With Rainfall Impact

If you have been surrounded by the sight and smell of pine trees, you may have taken a closer look at the needles and then wondered how their properties are influenced by rainfall. Researchers are ...

Climate Change Threatens Breeding Birds

Surviving on a warming planet can be a matter of timing -- but simply shifting lifecycle stages to match the tempo of climate change has hidden dangers for some animals, according to new research. ...

Tree Rings Show Scale of Arctic Pollution Is Worse Than Previously Thought

The largest-ever study of tree rings from Norilsk in the Russian Arctic has shown that the direct and indirect effects of industrial pollution in the region and beyond are far worse than previously ...

Impact of Climate Change on Rainforest Elephants

Experts have looked into the impact of climate change on Central Africa's rainforests and the threat posed to elephant populations in the ...

Driven by Climate, More Frequent, Severe Wildfires in Cascade Range Reshape Forests

New research found that while the increased wildfire activity is causing widespread changes in the structure and composition of these mid-to-high elevation forests, the new landscapes are also likely ...

Halt Post-Disturbance Logging in Forests, Experts Urge

Please do not disturb: After forest fires, bark beetle infestations and other damage, the affected forests should not be ...

Placing Barthelonids on the Tree of Life

Researchers have categorized barthelonids, a group of microscopic anaerobic flagellates, as an early branching Metamonada lineage based on their genetic identity and mitochondrial evolutionary ...

Forest Margins May Be More Resilient to Climate Change Than Previously Thought

A warming climate and more frequent wildfires do not necessarily mean the western United States will see the forest loss that many scientists expect. Dry forest margins may be more resilient to ...

Tree Planting Has Potential to Increase Carbon Sequestration Capacity on Nation's Forests

In the United States, fully stocking non-stocked and poorly stocked forests would result in an annual increase of 20 percent in the amount of carbon sequestered by ...

Mapping the 1.6 Billion People Who Live Near Forests

Global maps of places where people and forests coexist show that an estimated 1.6 billion people live within 5 kilometers of a forest. The assessment, based on data from 2000 and 2012, showed that of ...

Colorado's Famous Aspens Expected to Decline Due to Climate Change

Using computer modeling, researchers simulated how the distribution of quaking aspen, a native tree known for its brilliant yellow and orange foliage in fall and the sound of its trembling leaves, ...

Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle Makes Unexpected 'Host Shift' to Guam's Cycad Trees

Researchers have documented what biologists call a 'host shift' of the coconut rhinoceros beetle in Guam. The beetle, first documented as an invasive species in Guam in 2007, has been ...

Evergreen Needles Act as Air Quality Monitors

Every tree, even an evergreen, can be an air quality monitor. That's the conclusion of researchers who measured the magnetism of particulate matter on the needles of evergreen trees. That ...

Satellite Images Display Changes in the Condition of European Forests

The forest canopy, the closed vegetation cover consisting of treetops, is rapidly declining according to new research. The team used satellite images, to create the first high-resolution map of ...

New Rules for Algae Species Classification

A team of evolutionary biologists and ecologists has a new idea for how scientists should classify algae ...

DNA Unlocks a New Understanding of Coral

A new study challenges more than 200 years of coral classification. Researchers say the 'traditional' method does not accurately capture the differences between species or their ...

Historical Climate Fluctuations in Central Europe Overestimated Due to Tree Ring Analysis

Tree rings exaggerate, a team of researchers finds. Scientists deduce historical climatic conditions for the past hundreds of years from the width of the annual growth rings of trees. Previous ...

Trees Living Fast Die Young
