Increasing wood pellet exports from the United States are projected to lead to changes in land use and timberland management, including a shift from natural timberland to pine plantations. These projected changes may impact biodiversity.
Impact of increased wood pellet demand on biodiversity in the south‐eastern United States
A paper was published in Global Change Biology: Bioenergy (Volume 10, Issue 11 - November 2018) entitled: Impact of increased wood pellet demand on biodiversity in the south‐eastern United States. This study aims to quantify potential biodiversity impacts of increased wood pellet demand in the south‐eastern United States in a spatially explicit manner. The analysis used species richness maps from the Gap Analysis Project.
