The end of fall foliage: Why leaves' colors are fading

The much-beloved colors of fall — the golds, reds, oranges and even browns of leaves in autumn — might not last forever.

The changing of leaves is changing, according to a series by the Long-Term Ecological Research group of the National Science Foundation.

The colors' brilliance could soon begin to fade because of human-caused interference. Land use changes and climate change are the main reasons fall colors could be a little more boring soon. Pesticides and human-introduced pests could also have an effect.

See the story at the National Science Foundation.
