One might never know it, but the seemingly quiet Harvard Forest in Massachusetts is actually hard at work. Like other forests, it’s busy doing some serious global housekeeping, which is being monitored by scientists at Harvard University. With support from the National Science Foundation, researchers are studying forest ecology. That research includes determining how the forest responds to carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
