Holm Paper Receives DOE Recognition
Source: Jennifer Holm and Dan Hawkes
An investigative team largely from Pacific Northwest National Lab, but including ESD’s Jennifer Holm, recently published a paper (in Biogeosciences) that was noted in a post this past week (March 25) on the home page of the DOE Office of Science website. The article, provocatively titled “Does Death Stalk the Forest?”, notes the increasing rate of tree mortality throughout the U.S., but suggests that the main problem in predicting the resilience of forests may be in the current forest models themselves.
