    Berkeley Lab study on Alaska’s forest makeup in the future, just out:

    Berkeley Lab study finds evergreen conifer trees will decline and deciduous broadleaf trees dominate in a warmer climate with more wildfires.

    This summer, Alaska has experienced record high temperatures and devastating wildfires. If such events become more frequent, how might that impact our northernmost forests? A team of researchers led by the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) projected that the combination of climate change and increased wildfires will cause the iconic evergreen conifer trees of Alaska to get pushed out in favor of broadleaf deciduous trees, which shed their leaves seasonally.
