Choice of variables, climate models and emissions scenarios all influence the results of species distribution models under future climatic conditions. However, an overview of applied studies suggests that the uncertainty associated with these factors is not always appropriately incorporated or even considered.

Past land use can create altered soil conditions and plant communities that persist for decades, although the effects of these altered conditions on consumers are rarely investigated. Using a large-scale field study at 36 sites in longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) woodlands, the researchers examined whether historic agricultural land use leads to differences in the abundance and community composition of insect herbivores (grasshoppers, families Acrididae and Tettigoniidae).

The recent mortality of up to 20% of forests and woodlands in the southwestern United States, along with declining stream flows and projected future water shortages, heightens the need to understand how management practices can enhance forest resilience and functioning under unprecedented scales of drought and wildfire. To address this challenge, a combination of mechanical thinning and fire treatments are planned for 238,000 hectares (588,000 acres) of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) forests across central Arizona, USA.

A huge fire has spread at the Angale community forest at Ward No. 6, the newly-declared Api Municipality (the then Chhapari VDC) adjoining Khalanga, the district headquarters.

Scientists at the Rain Forest Research Institute (RFRI) here have found a new sub-type pine forest in Arunachal Pradesh, said to be the first such forest in India.

Tree-ring records are a valuable source of information for understanding long-term, regional-scale drought changes. In this study, a tree ring width chronology spanning the last 330 years (A.D. 1681–2010) is developed for the northern fringe of
the Asian summer monsoon in north central China based on tree ring widths of the Chinese pine (Pinus tabulaeformis) at three sites in the Hasi Mountain (HSM).

The aim of this study was to determine response patterns and mechanisms of soil respiration to precipitation increases in subtropical regions.

The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 per tree on a private builder for cutting trees and has asked him to compensate the heavy loss to the environment by planting

Autsho, Lhuentse: A forest fire that started from the banks of Kurichu at Autsho in Lhuentse has razed, over the weekend, more than 700 acres of pine forest, which is abundantly covered with lemon

Wildfires scorched Tennessee on Wednesday as blazes in New Jersey and on New York's Long Island were largely brought under control and some were investigated as possible arson.
