New research suggests that, sooner than expected, trees may become carbon sources rather than carbon sinks, as a feedback loop of rising temperatures drives them to release more greenhouse gases.
A study co-authored by UArizona researchers makes a strong case that even in arid climates, urban farms can help neighborhoods get the nutritious food they need if the farms are irrigated in a sustainable way.
