If trees could talk: Forest research network reveals global change effects

In addition to identifying, mapping, measuring and monitoring trees in the CTFS-ForestGEO study plots, researchers describe the relatedness of trees, track flower and seed production, collect insects, survey mammals, quantify carbon stocks and flows within the ecosystem, take soil samples and measure climate variables like rainfall and temperature.

Orasele-gradina, o solutie impotriva poluarii si suprapopularii din nou la moda
