AFRICA — Climate change maybe killing some of the world's most ancient and beautiful trees, according to new research.
Writing in a new study in the journal Nature Plants, researchers detail how they tracked African Baobab trees using radiocarbon dating since 2000.
According to Popular Science, the researchers looked at at 60 trees in total.
Their findings report that nine of 13 oldest trees have began to perish, as have five of six larger ones. The deaths just began occurring in the last 12 years, scientists don't know particularly why.
But they do have a guess and it's the usual suspect: climate change.
Speaking to the Los Angeles Times via email, lead author Adrian Partut explained the trees were used to "drier and colder conditions, but possibly not to hotter conditions.
Partut told the Times he and researchers suspect that the combination of "temperature increase and extreme drought stress were responsible for these demises."

The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
