Grizzly bears, black bears, wolves, coyotes, cougars/ mountain lions,bobcats, wolverines, lynx, foxes, fishers and martens are the suite of carnivores that originally inhabited North America after the Pleistocene extinctions. This site invites research, commentary, point/counterpoint on that suite of native animals (predator and prey) that inhabited The Americas circa 1500-at the initial point of European exploration and subsequent colonization. Landscape ecology, journal accounts of explorers and frontiersmen, genetic evaluations of museum animals, peer reviewed 20th and 21st century research on various aspects of our "Wild America" as well as subjective commentary from expert and layman alike. All of the above being revealed and discussed with the underlying goal of one day seeing our Continent rewilded.....Where big enough swaths of open space exist with connective corridors to other large forest, meadow, mountain, valley, prairie, desert and chaparral wildlands.....Thereby enabling all of our historic fauna, including man, to live in a sustainable and healthy environment. - Blogger Rick

Published on Mar 28, 2017, the attached utube (informative and illuminating) talk by our friend and Nature Writer Chris Bolgiano "describes how destructive logging in the Southern Appalachian Mountains in the early 20th century has resulted today in 6 million acres in 8 national forests that offer an enormous regional benefit to mitigate climate change via carbon sequestration by aging trees"............. "Because these national forests are publicly owned as a commons, the public stands to benefit(into the millenia ahead) from management that recognizes the uniquely important Appalachian CARBON COMMONS"

Hi, Rick, hope you are well!

Below is a link to my 12 minute PowerPoint YouTube presentation, "National Forests and The Great Appalachian Carbon Commons," that i recently gave at the Appalachian Studies Assoc. conference at VaTech.

Southern Appalachian National Forest lands in green

  It presents revolutionary new research on the carbon sequestration strength of aging and old-growth forests, focused on the 8 Appalachian national forests but applicable everywhere. 

 If you find it useful, feel free to send it on to anyone you think might be interested.  All best, -c
