Plans for reducing greenhouse gas emissions often focus directly on the emission sites themselves.  But there's a whole world full of places that can potentially serve as carbon "sinks," absorbing CO2 to keep it out of the atmosphere. 

So land conservation and ecosystem management can also be strategies to curb climate change. 

A recent study lays out the effects; two of the authors are from the Nature Conservancy in California.  D. Richard Cameron and Michelle Passero visit The Exchange.
