Going Green: Losing Forest

Description

Dr. Giorgos Mountrakis and graduate student Sheng Wang studied the geographic distribution of forest losses across the U.S. documenting a loss of about 3 percent, mostly in the northwest. The loss doesn't directly impact humans but can because forest dynamics are an integral part of larger ecosystems with the potential to affect water chemistry, soil erosion, local climate and biodiversity.
