“Logging not only reduces the forest’s ability to store carbon and the number of trees, it disrupts the soil badly,” Brian Buma, Integrative Biology Assistant Professor, recently told VICE News in a conversation about Alaska. He also recently spoke about the effects of wildfires locally, saying “The problem is, we have an ecosystem that is highly flammable, many years, and we have a lot of people living in it. That’s compounded by the fact that the climate is warming up, things are getting dryer, things are getting more flammable.”
