Can't see the water for the trees?
In the wake of the Forest-Water Nexus monitoring workshop that took place in Sweden last week, the need for an integrated approach to forest and water management has been highlighted once more in an article published today by Dr Dalton and colleagues.

The answer? A better collaborative science that takes into account broader integrated landscape interactions and recognizes water as a resource that trees both require and provide.
