Presenter : Louis Iverson
An overview of a set of tools that assess how climate change might influence tree distributions in the eastern U.S.
Presenter : Kevin Potter
Genetic risk assessments help forest managers understand where forests are at greatest risk and to decide where to invest limited resources.
Presenter : William Hargrove for James Westervelt
See how military installations in the State of Illinois are being used to study potential ecosystem responses to climate change.
Presenter : Dominique Bachelet
An overview of 23 climate model and their results. The use of multiple model approaches provides a range of outcomes for mangers to work from.
Presenter : Chris Swanston
The Climate Change Case Study in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest and the ecosystems evaluated, modeling used, and vulnerability assessments performed.
Presenter : Ronald P. Neilson
A review on the complexities of managing ecosystems under uncertainty about future changes.
Presenter : Forrest Hoffman, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Using multivariate spatio-temporal clustering (MSTC) model projections to determine shifts in climate regimes.
Presenter : William Hargrove
A niche-modeling approach for prioritizing tree species at risk to climate change and for producing predicted range maps for many tree species.
Presenter : Steven Norman
See how climate change is affecting the phenology, or cyclical timing of tree leaf-out and wildfire in the southeastern United States.
Presenter : Jeffrey Hicke
Climate drives insect outbreaks in forests; insect outbreaks can then influence climate through the carbon cycle.
Presenter : Linda Joyce
Observed ecological changes associated with a change in climate include the advance of spring events, species distribution changes, community shifts and asynchrony in species interactions.
Presenter : Richard Waring
Process-based models can be used to look at forest disturbance by insects, disease and fire across the Pacific Northwest.
Presenter : Nicholas Crookston
Forecasting the impacts of climate change on forests using the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) model.
Presenter : Bryan Armel
An overview of a climate change case study on the Shoshone National Forest in Wyoming, from the middle stage of the project.
Presenter : Connie Millar
Treeline response to climate in the western U.S.: the big picture and the current picture, as well as 21st century projections.
Presenter : Steve McNulty
A story of drought in western North Carolina and its impact on red spruce trees. Explores interactions between climate change, elevated nitrogen deposition and insects.
Presenter : Rachel Loehman
Climate, fire and vegetation are closely linked in western ecosystems; this presentation discusses how climate change might affect vegetation by changing wildfire disturbance patterns.
