New print edition of journal tags tree-stress project for cover story

LOS ALAMOS, N.M., Feb. 27, 2013—The print issue of the journal Nature Climate Change released this week features as its cover story the tree-stress research of Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist A. Park Williams and partners from the U.S. Geological Survey, University of Arizona and several other organizations.

Originally released in a Fall 2012 online edition, the paper, “Temperature as a potent driver of regional forest drought stress and tree mortality,” and its cover photograph by Craig D. Allen of the U.S. Geological Survey, drew attention to the potentially devastating effects of global warming particularly on the forests of the Southwest.
