An old Canadian woodlouse, an oak tree, and an alpine meadow are the most commonly used trees in the United States for the construction of homes.
However, the species are not native to the United State.
Many of them have been transplanted from Europe and Asia, and the resulting trees have become invasive in the Western United States.
The result is that many Americans are choosing to live in houses built using imported materials.
And while some homes can withstand these new invaders, the result is often a dilapidated home.
And the homes built using them, are also less resilient to the impacts of climate change, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology.
“We are seeing more and more homes built with imported materials, which are not only less sustainable, but also more prone to mold, and water infiltration, which increases the risk of moisture loss and the transmission of pathogens, especially in the winter,” said study lead author Michael A. DePinho, a postdoctoral researcher in anthropology at UC Berkeley.
DeRiso and his colleagues analyzed census records from more than 5,000 homes constructed between 1990 and 2015 in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City, and other metropolitan areas.
They looked at the types of wood, materials, and construction methods used to build the homes, and their durability.
They also looked at how many homes were demolished in the years before the study began, and found that homes built after 1990 were more likely to have mold and insects in the foundation, and that some homes were more susceptible to mold than older ones.
The authors also looked to see whether or not there was a correlation between how much wood was imported and the degree of mold.
They found that imports were related to the likelihood of mold and bugs, but that the more imported wood there was, the less likely the houses were to have a mold problem.
“Our results suggest that while wood imported from Europe may have a negative impact on climate change impacts, it is important to remember that most imported materials are imported by people who are not familiar with the climate change challenges facing the West Coast,” DeRismo said.
“So while imported wood is not a reliable indicator of climate risk, it can be used to inform climate change mitigation efforts.”
