Do environmental worldviews and distrust in science affect those who care for our land?

Among other land types, our forests are important in supporting nature recovery and in helping society to respond to environmental change. When the majority of forests are owned by private individuals, their owners’ beliefs and actions can have a significant effect on the potential of these important benefits. Researchers from three different institutes worked together seeking to understand these factors and their results are published in a recent research paper in Small-scale Forestry.
