In no other industry today is it more obvious to see the culmination of affects of social, political, economic, and ecological instability than in the global production of food. As a defining characteristic of civilization itself, it is no wonder ...
Tribal groups in Earth's largest rainforest are already being affected by shifts wrought by climate
change, reports a paper published last week in the British journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.The paper, which is ...
Rainforests that have been affected by even low-intensity fires are far more vulnerable to invasion by grasses, finds a new study published in special issue of the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B. The findings are ...
One of the wild cards in climate
change is the fate of the Amazon
rainforest. Will it shrivel as the region dries in a warming climate
? Or will it grow even faster as the added carbon dioxide in the atmosphere spurs photosynthesis and allows ...
What will be the effect of global warming on the Amazon
rainforest? Over the last 30 years, forest fires, most of them deliberately started to clear land by cattle ranchers and soy farmers, have destroyed thousands of square miles of forest. This ...
change has a disconcerting tendency to amplify itself through feedback effects. Melting sea ice exposes dark water, allowing the ocean to soak up more heat. Arctic warming speeds the release of carbon dioxide from permafrost. And, as ...
If global warming were a race, the Northern Hemisphere would be winning. It is warming faster than the Southern Hemisphere, with some of the most rapid warming rates on Earth located in the Arctic, where sea and land ice is shrinking and ...

In the last 15 years 200,000 hectares of the Mau Forest in western Kenya have been converted to agricultural land. Previously called a “water tower” because it supplied water to the Rift Valley and Lake Victoria, the forest region has dried up; ...
Faster plant growth due to higher concentrations of carbon dioxide may offset increased emissions from forest die-off in the tropics, asserts a new study based on climate
The research, published this week in the journal Nature, ...
In a warming world, tropical forests may be hardier than previously thought.
For scientists who study the Amazon
, the worst-case scenario has long been clear. As the planet warms, some models suggest, the rainforest will dry and die, ...
rainforest is less vulnerable to die off because of global warming than widely believed because the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide also acts as an airborne fertilizer, a study showed on Wednesday.
The boost to growth from CO2, ...
The rate of tree mortality in the Amazon
rainforest due to storm damage and drought
is 9-17 percent higher than conventionally believed, reports a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
