Interest is growing among the scientific community about the powerful carbon capture and storage potential of mangroves
Abstract Background Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) is a class of non-coding RNA with important regulatory roles in biological process of organisms. The systematic comparison of lncRNAs with protein coding mRNAs in population expression and their response to environmental change are still poorly understood. Here we identified 17,610 lncRNAs and calculated their expression levels based on RNA-seq of 80 individuals of Miscanthus lutarioriparius from two environments, the nearly native habitats and...
Forest-driven water and energy cycles are poorly integrated into regional, national, continental and global decision-making on climate change adaptation, mitigation, land use and water management.
By Christopher Martius, Glenn Hyman, Houria Djoudi, Pham Thu Thuy In 2017, the flagship on climate change mitigation and adaptation research under the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA) is all set for the next six years of research work in FTA Phase 2. The importance of forests in climate change mitigation and adaptation has strongly been recognized […] The post Forests and climate change – charting the unpaved way from Paris to implementation appeared first on Forests,...
Anyone who has walked outside on a sunny day knows that forests and trees matter for temperature, humidity and wind speed. Planting trees speaks to concerns about climate change, but the directly important aspects of the tree-climate relationships...

Abstract The Alpine landscape is characterized by high spatiotemporal heterogeneity in environmental variables, such as climate and soil characteristics. This may lead to divergent selection pressures across plant populations and to local adaptation. Geum reptans , a widespread high-alpine clonal herb, has been the subject of several studies investigating phenotypic variation in populations across the Swiss Alps, yet so far, there is only little knowledge about local adaptation in this species...
White spruce and lodgepole pine make up about 80% of all trees planted in Alberta annually. Therefore, adequately addressing climate change adaptation for forestry in Alberta requires a careful examination of white spruce and lodgepole pine breeding in individual CPP programs and across programs. This report is a compressed version of a comprehensive climatic and genetic analysis of the two species; more technical presentation of the analytical methodologies will be published in the peer-reviewed...
Protecting Tanzania’s mangroves CGIAR - News - 2 weeks ago
By Kate Evans, originally published at CIFOR’s Forests News Lush mangrove forests line the meandering channels of the Rufiji River Delta, south of the commercial capital Dar es Salaam on the east coast of Tanzania. It’s one of the largest mangrove areas in Africa, and like mangroves everywhere, they’re under threat. Mangrove trunks are being cut for timber, poles and […] The post Protecting Tanzania’s mangroves appeared first on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry .
By Kate Evans, originally published at CIFOR’s Forests News On December 26, 2004, a magnitude 9.1 earthquake off Sumatra, Indonesia, swept a massive tsunami across the Indian Ocean. The wave forged two kilometers inland in some places, and wiped out towns, crops, lives and livelihoods. In Indonesia’s Aceh province alone, 167,000 people died. Could anything have reduced its devastating impact? […] The post Where the land meets the sea: Governing mangrove forests appeared first on Forests, Trees...
Authors: Rotich, B.; Mwangi, E.; Lawry, S. This report provides a synoptic analysis of the legal and governance frameworks that relate to the use and management of mangrove forests globally. It highlights the range of challenges typically encountered in the governance and tenure dimensions of mangrove forest management. This assessment forms part of a broader study that includes national-level assessments […] The post Where Land Meets the Sea: A Global Review of the Governance and Tenure Dimensions...
