Climate Change Is Hurting Arizona Trees, According To New Research
Now, new research indicates that climate change in the form of extreme and inconsistent precipitation totals is also hurting some tree species.
Scientists studied tree ring records in well over a thousand U.S. locations to measure the impact of extremes in rain amounts. Two of those researchers, Matt Dannenberg and William Smith, joined The Show to talk about this trend.
Dannenberg is an assistant professor at the University of Iowa, and Smith is an assistant professor at the University of Arizona.
