Growing Non-native Trees in European Forests Brings Benefits and Opportunities but Also Has Its Risks and Limits

Abstract Purpose of Review Non-native tree species (NNT) raise a range of different associations and emotions—to many citizens they are just an exotic curiosity in parks, to many conservationists they are an evil to native ecosystems that should be eradicated, to a rising group of foresters they are part of the solution to climate change...

Using a vegetation model and stakeholder input to assess the climate change vulnerability of tribally important ecosystem services

We demonstrate a generalizable approach for assessing climate change effects on tribally important ecosystem goods and services. Indigenous peoples may be highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change because they rely on ecosystem goods and services, such as traditional foods, hunting, timber production, nontimber forest resources, and cultural resources. However, there are few assessments t...

Assessment of population genetics and climatic variability can refine climate-informed seed transfer guidelines

Restoration guidelines increasingly recognize the importance of genetic attributes in translocating native plant materials (NPMs). However, when species-specific genetic information is unavailable, seed transfer guidelines use climate-informed seed transfer zones (CSTZs) as an approximation. While CSTZs may improve how NPMs are developed and/or matched to restoration sites, they overlook genetic f...

Native generalist consumers interact strongly with seeds of the invasive wild cucumber (Echinocystis lobata)

When alien plant species arrive in a new environment, they develop novel interactions with native biota that can range from negative to positive. Determining the nature and strength of these interactions is integral to understanding why some aliens are suppressed and others become highly invasive pests. For introduced terrestrial plants, seed and seedling interactions with native biota are crucial...

High-level Roundtable Links Sustainable COVID-19 Recovery to Paris Agreement

The roundtable encouraged countries to implement the Secretary-General’s six “climate-positive actions”: investing in jobs and green business; avoiding bailouts to polluting industries; ending fossil fuel subsidies; considering climate risks in all decisions; working together; and ensuring that no one is left behind. Participants discussed climate ambition, needs and barriers, finance, plans...

Seed planning, sourcing, and procurement

Ensuring the availability of adequate seed supplies of species and sources appropriate for restoration projects and programs necessitates extensive science-based planning. The selection of target species requires a review of disturbance conditions and reference areas, development of a reference model, and consideration of specific objectives, timeframes, available resources, and budgets as well as...

Discovering key relationships between forest disease/health and microbial communities

The forest pathology paradigm is shifting to include complex ecological interactions that contribute to disease development, such as 1) microbial communities associated with the soil or host plant that suppress or enhance disease; 2) invasive pathogens that are associated with new hosts in new environments; 3) host and pathogen populations that display different adaptation and ecological behaviors...
