Publication in PLoS One of article on Forest Area and Density Trends

PHE continues its longstanding work on land use and land cover with a new publication in PLoS One on Forest Area and Density Trends.  The work, a product of collaboration between researchers at PHE, Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, and the University of Helsinki, analyzes trends in forest area and forest density in the United States and global regions over the last decades.  We learned that changes in forest area do not correlate steadily with changes in density.
