Offering trees some shelter

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been looking at the possible impacts of climate change on temperate forests around the world, impacts that could disrupt forest dynamics and alter the landscapes around us. Rising global temperatures can rearrange precipitation patterns, warm soils, and cause expanded disease and pest outbreaks. And there are concerns that tree […]

A moveable forest?

As I mentioned in my last post, predicting the form of future forests is complicated due to the wide variety of factors involved, but there are some common concerns that researchers share about the challenges trees will face with global climate change. Changes in temperature and precipitation patterns will alter the suitability of forest locations […]
