Keith, H.M., D. Lindenmayer, A. Macintosh and B. Mackey. 2015. Under what circumstances do wood products from native forests benefit climate change mitigation? PLoS ONE: 10

Aim: 
To analyse the circumstances under which wood products derived from native forests can help metigate climate change.
Type of Study: 
Article
Key Results: 
There are no circumstances under which the carbon stock in products can be sufficiently increased to exceed carbon stocks as a result of managing for conservation. International forest policies do not recognise the mitigation value of conserving forests
Locations: 
NSW, Vic
Ecosystem: 
Montane ash forests, mixed eucalypt forests
