Tongass logging affects both land and aquatic ecosystems. Carbon sequestration and Alaskan fisheries are both impacted
Ecosystem evolution is the critical threat Anthropocene climate change brings.
Ecological studies are not like political discussions where the facts are easily ignored.
Heat from climate warming forces changes in forest ecosystems. Managing those changes is vital.
