And how much area will be used to supply biofuels for alternative energy? How hot will it be, globally and in particular spots? How will decisions about forests and tree cover affect land use and human communities around the globe? Those are the big questions being asked at the University of Virginia, where faculty and experts from...

2014-04-23 20:14 | By Sophie Yeo, RTCC, 16 April 2014 | The Congo Basin will face disproportionately high levels of global warming by 2050 due to deforestation, researchers have warned. Shrinking rainforest cover means the area will heat up by an additional 0.7C by mid-century, on top of the 1.4C increase from today’s temperatures that rising global greenhouse gas emissions are projected to cause. This is in addition to the 0.85C of warming that the world has already experienced since industrial times, when...

2014-04-23 20:08 | e!

The study, published in the journal Nature Climate Change, showed that forests growing in fertile soils with ample nutrients are able to sequester about 30% of the carbon that they take up during photosynthesis. In contrast, forests growing in nutrient-poor soils may...

2014-04-23 20:06 | By William Laurance, Yale Environment 360, 10 April 2014 | I once stumbled out of a jungle in the Congo Basin and startled two Bantu farmers — both women — tending a small field. I spoke no Bantu and they no French, and so we just stared at each other, a little warily, until one of their toddlers wailed and we all shared a laugh. For the Bantu, farming has changed little in 3,000 years. The women still work small farming plots made by slashing and burning the rainforest. They plant crops like...
