The emergence of microplastics as a pollutant-harboring hazard in the oceans is a hot topic in scientific circles, but recent research by a Clemson University scientist and his collaborators suggests there is another potential danger lurking in marine habitats that has been previously ignored.
When people and property are endangered, wildfires are viewed as calamities. And, indeed, to those directly affected, they can be deadly and devastating. But from Mother Nature’s point of view, wildfires play an integral role in the health of a forest by thinning trees, burning dead or decaying matter and returning nutrients to the soil.
