    Description

    This pamphlet reports the recent scientific assessment that analyzed how future climate variablity and change may affect forests in the United States. The assessment, sponsored by the USDA Forest Service, and supported, in part, by the U.S Department of Energy, and the National Atmospheric and Space Administration, describes the suite of potential impacts on forests. The study was conducted by a team of scientists from academia, industry, and government laboratories. It summarizes the key findings of the Forest Sector team in four broad areas: (1) forest productivity and hydrology, (2) disturbances, (3) biodiversity, and (4) socioeconomic impacts.
