Forest Management Can Keep Carbon in Forests and Protect Communities from Wildfire in the American West
The U.S. is investing billions of dollars to reduce forest fire risks. New research maps the hot spots where investments in strategic forest management could offer the biggest payoff for people and climate.
New research from Borneo shows that the soundscape of a forest changes significantly following selective logging.
Protecting logging concessions could be a valuable tool for biodiversity conservation.
By scientists for scientists: a set of practical steps scientists can take to increase the odds their research will reach decision makers who could use it.
A new study examines flooding from Hurricanes Matthew and Florence and finds current hazard maps are inadequate for accurately assessing flood risks and protecting communities in North Carolina.
New science shows that remnant forests with the greatest tree-species richness also store the most carbon, creating a potential win-win for protecting biodiversity and reducing global carbon emissions.
New science shows that diverse natural forests with a mix of tree species provide more stable and reliable carbon capture than monoculture plantations in the long run.
TNC NatureNet Science Fellow Robert Higgins describes an environmentally friendly way to extract the rare-earth minerals that are critical to green energy technologies, from wind turbines to hydrogen-powered cars.
Migratory birds are facing changing insect hatches and tree blooms. How can they adapt? And how can you help?
New research finds 1 in 5 active underground natural gas storage wells in the U.S. could be vulnerable to large-scale accidental releases, like the one at California's Aliso Canyon well field in October 2015.
To solve the world’s most pressing conservation problems, scientists are looking to drones, nanotechnology, microbes and even pasta makers.
