Regan Dunn said: "Looking at the fossil record, at plants and birds, there are multiple lines of evidence suggesting that the forest canopies collapsed," External link

Daniel Field said: "We concluded that the temporary elimination of forests in the aftermath of the asteroid impact explains why arboreal birds failed to survive across this extinction event," External link

Regan Dunn explained: "After a disaster like a forest fire or a volcanic eruption, the first plants to come back are the fastest colonisers - especially ferns," External link

nzherald Sunday, June 3, 2018 8:43:00 AM CEST

Daniel Field said: "Today, birds are the most diverse and globally widespread group of terrestrial vertebrate animals - there are nearly 11,000 living species," "Only a handful of ancestral bird lineages succeeded in surviving the mass extinction event 66 million years ago, and all of today's amazing living bird diversity can be traced to these ancient survivors" External link

Regan Dunn said: "The end-Cretaceous event is the fifth mass extinction - we're in the sixth," "It's important for us to understand what happens when you destroy an ecosystem, like with deforestation and climate change - so we can know how our actions will affect what comes after us" External link

Pierre Gentine says: "Our findings suggest that forest height and age are an important regulator of photosynthesis in response to droughts," External link

Pierre Gentine says: "Our study makes it clear that forest height and age directly impact the carbon cycle in the Amazon," "This is especially significant given the importance of the Amazon rainforest for the global carbon cycle and climate" External link

Julia Clarke says: “It’s an intriguing new hypothesis to explain both extinction and survival,” External link

Daniel Field says: “The extent to which the evolutionary histories of major modern groups, like birds, mammals, and flowering plants, were influenced by the end-Cretaceous mass extinction is only now coming into focus,” “This global catastrophe left such an indelible signature on the evolutionary trajectories of these groups that we can still discern it 66 million years later” External link

Daniel Field says: “The study came together bit by bit,” External link

Daniel Field says: “These analyses showed that the most recent common ancestor of all living birds, and all bird lineages that crossed the end-Cretaceous boundary, were likely ground-dwelling,” External link

msn-uk Friday, May 25, 2018 12:25:00 AM CEST

Daniel Field says: “These observations are consistent with the idea that ground-dwelling lineages survived across the end-Cretaceous boundary, and then repeatedly took to the trees once global forests had rebounded,” “All of the disparate sources of data we turned to—the pollen fossil record, the bird fossil record, and inferences based on modern bird ecology—all supported fundamentally the same hypothesis” External link

Luis Chiappe says: “The authors have done a great job at presenting a very compelling argument about the role of globally disappearing forests in the evolution of modern birds,” External link

Julia Clarke adds: “One of the nicest aspects of this new study is that it is testable,” “The same cannot be said of all explanations for why dinosaurs go extinct” External link

John Upton says: “While landowners prioritize maximizing economic output from their forests, which usually means maximizing growth rates of commercially valuable individual trees, environmentalists prioritize ecosystem values, like biodiversity and the potential for forests to provide natural habitat and long-term carbon storage,” External link

biomassmagazine Wednesday, May 23, 2018 11:18:00 PM CEST

Jennifer Jenkins says: “Landowners don’t typically grow or harvest timber for wood pellets,” “Forest owners are rational, economic actors and want to produce as much sawtimber as possible to maximize their revenue per acre, since sawtimber is worth many multiples of what pulpwood is worth. The wood that Enviva takes is the lowest-quality wood from a given harvest” External link

biomassmagazine Wednesday, May 23, 2018 11:18:00 PM CEST

Jennifer Jenkins says: “We are also certified under the Sustainable Biomass Program,” “The local forest products markets are integrated such that a variety of products are produced from the same forest tract. Our Track & Trace data confirm that, on average, we receive about 30 percent of the wood produced during a timber harvest. That number is relatively low because the wood we procure is a byproduct of a traditional sawtimber harvest. This is low-grade wood fiber, often diseased or crooked, or the tops, limbs, slash and understory that doesn’t have higher value elsewhere” External link

biomassmagazine Wednesday, May 23, 2018 11:18:00 PM CEST

Jennifer Jenkins says: “And we also know that in many cases, harvest of a low-quality tract will enable regeneration of higher-valued trees such as cypress,” “As we do for all of our purchases, we agree to purchase from bottomlands only when we believe that harvest is the best outcome for that tract of land. We’ve also made tangible commitments to wetland forest conservation through our Enviva Forest Conservation Fund, and in the first three years of the program we’ve contributed to protecting more than 10,000 acres of sensitive forests” External link

biomassmagazine Wednesday, May 23, 2018 11:18:00 PM CEST

Jennifer Jenkins says: “The Southeast U.S. is one of the world’s most important timber baskets, and the region is responsible for one-sixth of the timber production that occurs globally every year,” “The forests in this region are owned overwhelmingly by private landowners who manage forestland to provide the steady stream of wood products that our economy and society depend on, while producing income for their families over time. The forest products industry is an important contributor to local economic health in the areas where we operate. The industry provides jobs for local residents and income for landowners, providing them with economic incentives to replant and keep their land forested, rather than converting the land to other uses” External link

biomassmagazine Wednesday, May 23, 2018 11:18:00 PM CEST

Jennifer Jenkins says: “We recognized the need to go beyond certification to provide assurance that we conduct the most responsible sourcing possible,” “We implemented our industry-leading Track & Trace program in order to give our customers and stakeholders more visibility into our sourcing practices because we want people to know where our wood is coming from. We invite everyone to take a look at our website, where we publishtract-by-tractour sourcing data as evidence of our commitment to transparency” External link

biomassmagazine Wednesday, May 23, 2018 11:18:00 PM CEST

Jennifer Jenkins says: “We engage in a very constructive way on a daily basis with a wide range of environmental organizations and stakeholders interested in environmental stewardship, including the American Forest Foundation, The Nature Conservancy, The Longleaf Alliance, The Forest Trust, and The Forest Stewards Guild, to name just a few, and we are actively seeking new partnerships,” “The purpose of this engagementand why we make it a priorityis to share scientific expertise on sustainable forestry, to get objective feedback on how we’re doing, and gather constructive input on how we can do even better. We strive for continuous improvement and have implemented and continue to implement ideas and suggestions from our partners in the environmental community. It’s true there are certain groups that do not wish to work with us to improve sustainability, but these are outliers in the environmental community” External link
