NM’s forests make it into ‘Scientific American’

….though sorry, the article isn’t a cheery one.

Scientific American has an article today about the work scientists are doing in the Jemez Mountains. They’re trying to learn if pinon and juniper trees can survive the type of “superdrought” the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has predicted will occur in the southwestern United States in the future.

You can check out the article online at: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=experiments-suggest-grassland-may-replace-forest-in-us-southwest
