Enhancement of forest canopy research, education, and conservation in the new millennium

  title={Enhancement of forest canopy research, education, and conservation in the new millennium},
  author={Nalini Nadkarni},
  journal={Plant Ecology},
Study of the forest canopy has reached a critical stage in its development from a young ‘frontier’ area of study to a vibrant and coalescing field of investigation and communication. Many current environmental and social issues at global scales (e.g., environmental change, acid deposition, loss of biodiversity) are related directly to our knowledge of forest canopies. I present six activities that are needed to help the vibrant and growing field of forest canopy studies progress efficiently… CONTINUE READING
