Forest Health in a Changing World

This video from Science explores how today's forests have been greatly altered by human activity and face increasing threats from drought, insect infestations, and fire. The health of forests matters a great deal because it can dictate whether forests persist and function into the future, sustaining wildlife, producing timber, sequestering carbon, and performing other services. You can read more about forest health in Special issue: Forest health in a changing world, from Science.
