Published in late 2012, this report examines the relationship between climate change and forest ecosystems. It explains the changes forest ecosystems will face with continued climate change and presents adaptation and implementation strategies. This report includes resources to help with adaptation, which enables organizations and communities to better prepare forest ecosystems for the impacts of climate change and to use those same ecosystems to help mitigate climate change’s effects.
