Global climate change is predicted to alter the distribution and activity of several forest pathogens. Boland et al. (2004) suggested that climate change might affect pathogen establishment, rate of disease progress, and the duration of epidemics, each in a potentially different way. In some cases, climate changes may favor the onset of disease and potentially accelerate the displacement of a tree species from portions of its current geographic range. In other instances, climate changes may be detrimental to the development of disease.
