Assisted migration to address climate change: recommendations for aspen reforestation in western CanadaDownload
Abstract: Human-aided movement of species populations in large-scale reforestation programs could be a potent and cost-effective climate change adaptation strategy. Such large-scale management interventions, however, tend to entail the risks of unintended consequences, and we propose that three...
A changing climate is the largest threat to forest productivity in western Canada and to the ability of forested landscapes to provide ecological and economic services, both now and in the future. As climate changes, locally adapted tree populations become mismatched with local conditions,...
Southeast Asian dipterocarp forests are highly diverse tropical forest communities, with the family Dipterocarpaceae alone comprising hundreds of species. Dipterocarps are remarkable in that they exhibit supra-annual mass flowering events, which occur in irregular intervals of two to ten years,...
As climates warm and extreme climatic events occur with more frequency and severity, maintaining forest health and productivity may involve planting seed sources from warmer, drier areas. To guide such reforestation strategies, this work analyzes the risks of both climate change and assisted...
