Articlesummary “BorealForest Health and Global Change article” was published by the AmericanAssociation of Advancement Science based in New York with the latest copyrightdated 2017. The Boreal forest remains beneficial at local and global level. Themain aim of the authors was to identify the state of Boreal with reference thecurrent climatic changes. This study determined that Boreal forest has grossimpacts as a pool of natural resources such as hydroelectric power developmentand remains resilient as far as climate regulation is concerned. The focus ofthe study was on projected environmental changes and the roles of management incombating the global change threats available.
Strengths Thearticle addressed every side of the story bringing out a report that was lackedbias. The authors not only identified the current advancement noticed in theforest but also the emerging health and global change threats that need to beaddressed. The significance of the forest to ecosystem was adequately addressednotably its role in climatic regulation. The paper used detailed data analysismethods with elaborative graphical representations such distribution maps thatimportant to readers.
WeaknessesHowever, there are weaknesses evident in thereport. The available data seemed complex are thus very difficult to analyzefrom a simple view. A reader would have a hard time to appreciate the some ofthe information.
The recommendation section was somewhat ambiguous. Some of therecommendations are unclear and will take very long time to achieve. Forinstance, the report proposes better processes such as silviculture which hasalways been used yet the status remains the same. Nevertheless, the only way to go globalcooperation among forest-based communities and economies is by improving thehealth such components of the ecosystem.OpinionThe authors have tried to address significantissues about forest health and global change.
It was undoubtedly an excellentstudy with detailed findings and impressive recommendations. Nevertheless,there is a need for further research to see how the recommendations can beeasily met to improve the status of our ecosystem locally and globally. The reading was assigned to appreciate theimportance of Boreal forest ecosystems such as a pool of natural resources anda critical climatic regulator. The paper also highlighted good recommendationsworth adopting to improve the health of such components of the ecosystem.
