Boreal forests challenged by global change

20 agosto 2015

Forest management must adapt in order to ensure that forests stay healthy in a time of unprecedented environmental change, say experts. Boreal forests are one of the ecosystems most affected by climate change, with temperatures in the arctic and boreal domains recently warming at rates as high as 0.5°C per decade, and potential future warming of 6 to 11°C over vast northern regions by 2100.
