This reference material elucidates the effects of fire on grasslands and considers the role of fire in temperate forests and related ecosystems. Project Drawdown defines temperate forest restoration as: the restoration and protection of temperate-climate forests on degraded lands.
This solution replaces degraded forest. Young forests sequester carbon in both soils and biomass at impressive rates. Temperate forests include coniferous, broad-leaved evergreen, broad-leaved deciduous, and mixed associations.(The word “deciduous” [dih-SID-yoo-uhss] comes from a Latin word meaning “to fall.”) Located in the eastern United States, all over Europe, Japan, and parts of Russia and China, temperate deciduous forests are home to deer, wolves, hawks and owls, songbirds, and many other species.Temperate forests have been reduced and modified throughout human history more than any other forest biome.
