North Carolina State University Researchers Develop Computer Model to Forecast Long-Term Impacts of Forest Land Use Decisions
North Carolina State University Researchers Develop Computer Model to Forecast Long-Term Impacts of Forest Land Use Decisions, Biofuels Journal – Online; also Terra Daily, EnvironmentalExpert.com, Individual.com, M2 PRESSWIRE – May 11, 2012. The drive to develop crops for use in biofuels is raising questions about how to use forest land. A new computer model developed at North Carolina State University offers the most detailed insight yet into predicting how these new land uses might impact the environment – and may also help us understand how the forest ecosystem will respond to global climate change. Dr. Shiying Tian, a postdoctoral researcher at NC State and lead author of a paper on the new model, is featured.
