Reconsider the impact of trees on water cycles and climate, scientists say

Forests and trees play a major role on water cycles and cooler temperatures, contributing to food security and climate change adaptation. In recent decades, the climate change discourse has looked at forests and trees mostly as carbon stocks and carbon sinks, but now scientists are calling for more attention on the relation between trees and water in climate change. A new publication and a symposium try to shed new light on the debate.
