Fuels, not fire weather, control carbon emissions in boreal forest

"...That's a pivotal finding, since fire weather, as measured by a Fire Weather Index, is one of the main tools scientists and fire managers currently use to model carbon emissions in these boreal forests. This study suggests fuels should be a bigger component of those models. "When we think of climate change and wildfires, we often instinctively think of extreme weather conditions," said Marc-André Parisien, a research scientist with the Canadian Forest Service and co-author of the study..."

Taking a walk on the wild side: An interview with the Guest Editors of our Rewilding & Restoration Call for Papers

"...CS: We are about to enter the UN’s Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030). It has been declared to ‘massively scale up the restoration of degraded and destroyed ecosystems’ to help ‘fight the climate crisis and enhance food security, water supply and biodiversity’. It is an exciting prospect! But, there is a danger this decade will be squandered if restoration practice is not combined with effective rewilding and restoration research..."

Maximizing the national green momentum to protect forests in Madagascar

"...While defending the rights of local communities to have access to and make use of the forest zones, the World Bank is enhancing the role of forests in its poverty reduction efforts through two key programs: the Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) project and the Sustainable Landscape Management Project (PADAP), approved in 2017. The first program consists of remunerating efforts to reduce carbon emissions stemming from deforestation and forest degradation. In this regard, Madagascar has developed an initial emission reduction program, approved by the Carbon Fund, in the rain forest ecoregion in the eastern part of the country..."
