Study shows that mixed forests are more productive. The study investigated the relationship between tree species diversity in forests and their growth performance. In 44 countries about 30 million trees were examined.
Study: Intact primal forests are the key to mitigating climate change, limiting biodiversity loss and achieving many of the UN’s sustainability goals. 21 representatives of scientific institutions from Australia, Canada, Sweden, the USA and the UN summarize the results of more than 200 studies in the fields of forest, ecology and climate research in this metastudy.
Study: A newly developed indicator can significantly improve forecasts of the consequences of climate change for our forests. Natural forest reserves serve as a reference for the adaptation of tree species and forest ecosystems to climate change. The accuracy of the indicator is likely to increase in the future.
