The majestic Eucalyptus regnans stands far above its forest brethren.
Three researchers studied the "crop raiders" of the Brazilian rainforest in the hope of aiding both local farmers and wildlife conservation.
Thousands of dirt roads crisscross the Brazilian Amazon, serving ranchers, loggers and miners. The area's fragile waterways — and the spectacular fish that live in them — pay a high price.
A drying climate caused a mass extinction among plants, but paved the way for the ancestors of modern reptiles, mammals, and birds.
It's crucial to know the relationship between biodiversity and carbon storage to assess whether carbon-focused conservation will also protect the most biodiverse forests.
A time-series analysis of tree cover loss before, during and after road construction reveals a strong relationship between infrastructure development and accelerating deforestation.
Combining new technologies, including Global Forest Watch, a Forest Monitoring App and Participatory 3D Modelling, brings out traditional knowledge of the elders.
New research shows how ancient rainforest cultures have left their mark on today's plantlife.
Illegal logging is a serious threat but new ways of detecting illegal timber could help save global forests.
Bird diversity may be the secret to forest resilience.
The organisms that we're now discovering are often more hidden and more difficult to catch than ever before.
The extinction threat you haven't heard of: several South American birds teeter on the brink of existence due to habitat loss. And history is not the best guide for how to save them.
New data have revealed a disturbing trend in forest loss: the hearts of the world's forests are disappearing. To stop them bleeding out, we'll have to say 'no' to some developments.
From drought to economic slowdown, 2016 promises a mixed bag for the world's forests.
Australia may have reputation for vast areas of wilderness, but in reality the continent's ecosystems have been chopped and diced. Now we need to protect what's left.
The world's rainforests are still being slashed and burned at a dizzying rate to make consumer products. But now there are signs of real political will, especially in Asia, to rein in the destruction.
There are more than three trillion trees worldwide, but that's only half as many were around at the start of human civilisation according to new research.
We're heading for mass extinctions in the world's most diverse ecosystem.
What we think we know, don't know and things that might surprise us about climate change and the environment.
A new paper shows 1 in 6 species could be extinct due to climate change, and Australia will be particularly hard hit.
