Ecology: Warmer forests store less carbon

Climate change might reduce the amount of carbon that forests can store, in part because photosynthesis decreases at high temperatures.Emily Meineke and her colleagues at North Carolina State University in Raleigh studied willow oaks (Quercus phellos) in the local area, where —
