May 06, 2020 Attachment: WP-20-03_Biodiversity_LCA_Review_May2020

This white paper reviews novel life cycle assessment (LCA) approaches developed since 2015 that evaluate the potential effects of forest management on biodiversity. This review builds upon NCASI Special Report No. 15-04, which expands upon the theory of land use and biodiversity in LCAs and is foundational to this review of seven pertinent LCA methods.
