Description

Forestry and natural resource professionals are increasingly looking for information on the anticipated effects of climate change on ecosystems, as well as management options for responding to these changes. The field of climate change adaptation has been growing rapidly in the past decade, with multiple organizations providing scientific and technical resources to help advance climate-informed practices across the northeastern United States and beyond. However, the inability to know exactly what will happen in the future can create a significant barrier to incorporating new information into management planning and practice.
