Extra Atmospheric CO2 Increased Red Spruce Forest Growth 106% Since 1989

By Dr. Craig Idso Writing as background for their study, Mathias and Thomas (2018) say that “tree ring growth and isotope chronologies have become important proxies used to examine historical changes in productivity, plant physiology, and ecosystem processes in a rapidly changing environment.” In producing three such proxies of their own, the two researchers analyzed…

It’s not too late to save them, but it’s a question of whether we make the effort, scientists say. 6 Minute Read By Carrie…

Tree-ring analysis explains physiology behind drought intolerance

Public Release: 26-Dec-2018 Oregon State University CORVALLIS, Ore. – Tree rings tell the story of what’s happening physiologically as fire suppression makes forests more dense and less tolerant of drought, pests and wildfires, new research shows. Scientists at Oregon State University and Utah State University studied 2,800 hectares of mixed-conifer forest in central Oregon, with…
