This report responds to the invitation for IPCC to provide a Special Report in 2018 on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways’ contained in the Decision of the 21st Conferen
In this report, we investigate how integrating components of oak woodlands into developed landscapes — “re-oaking” — can provide an array of valuable functions for both wildlife and people.
The facts and figures contained in the pages of this report and accompanying website will probably come as a total revelation to many people.
The Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC), with its 16 plant conservation targets was originally adopted by the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in 2002.
The urban forest of the Chicago Wilderness region, a 7-million-acre area covering portions of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin, will face direct and indirect impacts from a changing climate over the 21st century.
Inadequate information on the geographical distribution of biodiversity hampers decision-making for conservation.
The first TGI report, published in 2015, identified eight critical gaps slowing the transfer of stress-adapted trees from upstream research to forest owners and managers. The gaps fell into three categories: Innovation, Policy, and Markets.

Since 1991, the Penn State Extension Urban Forestry Program has delivered a variety of programs from land use workshops and arborist short courses to Tree Tender trainings and municipal stormwater workshops.
Native seed is in high demand, but the availability of suitable product varies. Habitat restoration and other conservation efforts rely heavily on appropriately sourced propagules.
