Zuihitsu: Chapter Bridges

Zuihitsu 13

“These and other anciently native trees prevalent during the Eocene Thermal Maximum might have what it takes to survive the warmer conditions we have already begun to experience. Why not bring them back on a larger scale to the areas they once lived in, so they can fill the niches that will be left behind as the more heat sensitive present day species begin to decline? Wouldn’t this be somehow artificial? Of course it would. ”
