White Spruce Growing Well in Face of Warming Climate at Alaska Firth River Study Site

White spruce at a study site along Alaska’s Firth River are adapting well to a warming climate, according to a Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory research team. That’s in stark contrast to white spruce populations in the rest of the state. The team matched tree ring growth, wood density data and climate data dating back to 1067 in carrying out their study.

Dry Mushrooms Might Be Key In Combating Climate Change

Global warming is expected to hit northern latitudes hardest, raising temperatures between 5 and 7 degrees Celsius by the year 2100. But now scientists experimenting with life under dryer conditions have made a stunning discovery about Northern forests that could be key in the fight against global warming itself. The scientists found out that mushrooms growing in the warmer, dry…
