The genome of trees timberbiz - News - 10 hours ago
Due to climate change humankind is facing a situation where preparation and actions are needed. These challenges also concern nature in Finland and globally. Our forests are already changing as trees and other organisms adapt to changing conditions or spread into new areas. Source: Timberbiz The genome of trees is changing in the process; large spruces originally adapted to a certain type of climate, but the seeds that fell on the snow last winter have slightly different genomes. Through such slow...
The event titled, ‘Forests and Water on a Changing Planet: Scientific Insights for Building Sustainable and Resilient Societies,’ launched the Global Forest Expert Panel assessment report, ‘Forest and Water on a Changing Planet: Vulnerability, Adaptation and Governance Opportunities,’ which addresses, among other things, the climate-forest-water-people nexus. Speakers highlighted links between SDG 6 and SDG 15, including through SDG 6 target 6.6 (protect and restore water-related ecosystems).
Adaption Futures Conference LTSI - News - 5 days ago
Adaptation Futures 2018, the fifth in the Adaptation Futures international conference series on global adaptation. LTS Director Irene Karani travelled to Cape Town last week to attend this conference, here’s what she found… The conference aimed to facilitate dialogues for solutions between … Continue reading →
In Brandenburg, north-eastern Germany, climate change is associated with increasing annual temperatures and decreasing summer precipitation. Appraising short rotation coppices (SRCs), given their long-time planning horizon demands for systematic assessments of woody biomass production under a considerable spectrum of climate change prospects. This paper investigates the prospective growth sensitivity of poplar and black locust SRCs, established in Brandenburg to a variety of weather conditions and...
The Government of Georgia, with UNDP and UNFCCC, hosted a Regional Dialogue on NDCs for Eurasia. The Dialogue featured sessions linking the SDGs and NDCs and other topics that relate to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including energy, gender and finance. Country participants showcased how their governments were increasing ambition on their NDCs and challenges faced to date, including coordination across ministries to jointly implement the SDGs and NDCs.
Uganda’s NDC Partnership Plan focuses on creating an enabling environment for NDC implementation, effective coordination and prioritization, and monitoring and reporting on climate actions. The Plan identifies five priority areas for NDC implementation, including increased climate financing, and effective and institutionalized MRV systems to monitor emissions and gender-responsive adaptation measures. Uganda was one of the first African countries to join the NDC Partnership.

On 10 July 2018 at the United Nations High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) in New York, the Global Forest Expert Panel (GFEP) on Forests and Water presents: "Forest and Water on a Changing Planet: Vulnerability, Adaptation and Governance Opportunities. A Global Assessment Report", published as IUFRO World Series 38. Around 50 scientists working in more than 20 countries contributed to the study. Listen to interviews that IUFRO led with the co-chairs of the Expert Panel. GFEP is an initiative of the...
Canada’s forests are shaped by disturbances such as fire, insect outbreaks, and droughts that often overlap in time and space. The resulting cumulative disturbance risks and potential impacts on forests are generally not well accounted for by models used to predict future impacts of disturbances on forest. This study aims at projecting future cumulative effects of four main natural disturbances, fire, mountain pine beetle, spruce budworm and drought, on timber volumes across Canada’s forests using...
Wieser G, Gruber A, Oberhuber W GROWING SEASON WATER BALANCE OF AN INNER ALPINE SCOTS PINE (PINUS SYLVESTRIS L.) FOREST Abstract : We estimated components of the water cycle of a 150-year-old Pinus sylvestris forest in an inner Alpine dry valley of the Tyrol, Austria throughout five growing seasons. Forest canopy transpiration (TC) was measured by sap flow measurements scaled to the stand canopy level. Estimates of understory transpiration and forest floor evaporation (ETU) were derived from the...
The model of forest stand growth proposed in this study is based on R. Solow’s model of economic growth. The variables introduced into the model are the “capital” (the phytomass of the non-synthesizing tree components in the stand—the stem, roots, and branches) and the “labor” (the phytomass of the photosynthesizing tree components in the stand—leaves or needles). Root phytomass is calculated with a special independent model. The process of energy production...
