The climate of northeastern North America has changed markedly over the past 100 years and computer models for the region forecast more change to come. Policymakers, land managers, citizens, and scientists must grapple with what this change means for the future of the region and its forests. NSRC researcher Dr. Lindsey Rustad of the USFS Northern Research Station worked with other scientists to synthesize the consequences of this climate change for forested ecosystems of the northeastern United States and eastern Canada.
"Changing Climate, Changing Forests" represents a cross-disciplinary synthesis undertaken by a coalition of over 50 U.S. and Canadian scientists. The Northeast study region spans seven states of the northeastern United States and five provinces of eastern Canada. The report traces observed and projected shifts in temperature and precipitation and links them to a web of structural, biogeochemical, and wildlife shifts occurring throughout the region's forests.
