Climate change is endangering forests, but we cannot do without them. They are a key carbon sink, a bulwark against erosion, a water filter, a valuable resource – and places of great beauty.
Forests are often called the “earth’s green lung,” because they store CO2 and produce oxygen, thus helping to regulate the climate. But what happens if our forests disappear and what can we do to help protect them?
What secrets to success can forest ecosystems offer companies? German economic philosophers lead managers through a Munich woodland and explain what they can learn from fungi and dead trees.
More than three-quarters of all plant and animal species live in the tropics. But time to protect them is running out, a new study finds. Researchers are calling for a better approach to save this precious biodiversity.
When you think "sustainability," building with wood isn't necessarily the first thing that comes to mind. But a deeper look at the growing trend begs the question: Could wood be a key sustainable resource of our future?
