In a paper appearing recently in the journal Ecosphere, published by the Ecological Society of America, the study's co-authors linked a 2.3 degree Fahrenheit temperature rise over four decades recorded at nine research sites to a decline in pinyon pine seed cone reproduction. Leading the study was CU doctoral student Miranda Redmond and Assistant professor Nichole Barger. Joining them as co-author on the study was Frank Forcella of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
