It's not easy staying green: Forests and climate change

Nathan McDowell

Earth Systems Observations Group
Los Alamos National Laboratory

Climate warming is imposing a threat upon our forests unlike any other they have experienced in thousands of years. Warming dries the forests so that, from the perspective of the trees, even short droughts are severe. No forests appear to be immune to this challenge. This talk will explain the scientific basis for these conclusions and discuss the options we have for maintaining our forests in the face of this massive threat.
