Climate, trees, pests, and weeds

The combination of rapid climate change and nonnative stressors may accelerate decline of some tree species and inhibit other species from occupying climatically suitable habitat. This paper examines potential changes in tree habitat suitability in 121 national parks. It looks at nonnative tree pest and plant data to examine the spatial patterns of these stressors and their correlations with projected changes in tree habitat.
