Science Synthesis & Delivery

Research Brief Description
A Century of Change in a Ponderosa Pine Forest Living things change constantly, as do communities of living things. In a forest, where individual trees can live for centuries and new plants replace old plants, it is not easy to visualize the changes that occur over time.
