The severity of the issue has inspired the work to investigate how science is communicated via media discourse concerning forests in the changing climate, which has seldom been touched upon in previous literature. This book, therefore, firstly analyzes frames of scientists regarding forest issues in climate change using coding method and then provides a depiction of their characteristics for media prominence. The analysis is highly interdisciplinary and is especially helpful to professionals in the fields of forests, climate change as well as communications.
