Researchers have discovered that structurally diverse forests are better at carbon sequestration that monocultures.

New Study Maps Out the Global Pattern of Soil-based Carbon Storage

Caitlin Dempsey

Researchers from the Crowther Lab recently published a study in Science which reviewed existing research on soil communities and how climate change will accelerate the loss of carbon stored in the world's soil.

Storing Carbon in the Soil Through Regenerative Farming
