The Unique Challenges of Conserving Large Old Trees

Laurance, William F; Lindenmayer, David B

Description

Large old trees play numerous critical ecological roles. They are susceptible to a plethora of interacting threats, in part because the attributes that confer a competitive advantage in intact ecosystems make them maladapted to rapidly changing, human-modified environments. Conserving large old trees will require surmounting a number of unresolved challenges.
