Jerry Franklin, Professor of Ecosystem Analysis at the University of Washington, is working on ways to manage forests that enable them to retain both their productivity and their biodiversity. The value of forests goes far beyond the industrial use of the trees that comprise them. Forests provide us with the air we breathe, absorb greenhouse gases, and regulate stream flow. They are vital to the chemistry of the biosphere. What each of us consumes has a direct impact on the fate of the forests and their biodiversity.
