Forest Health and Biotechnology: Possibilities and Considerations

Author: Committee on the Potential for Biotechnology to Address Forest Health, Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources, Division on Earth and Life Studies.

Description: Nearly one-third of the United States is covered by forests, accounting for more than one million square miles, an area exceeded only in Canada, Brazil, and Russia. These forest ecosystems play vital roles in carbon storage, nutrient cycling, and air and water purification, as well as in supplying habitat for wildlife. Forests hold historical, cultural, and social significance for Americans and are sources of both food and fiber.
