About this book

Future Forests: Adaptation to Climate Change provides background on forests as natural and social systems, the current distribution and dynamics based on major biomes that set the stage for chapters on the role of forests in global systems, the nature of climate change organized by biomes, and detailed descriptions of mitigation and adaptation strategies and techniques. This book forms an advanced foundational summary of the feedback between the effect of climate change on forests and the converse effects of forests on climate, leading to conclusions on how forest management needs to be dictated by climate change and how climate change can be mitigated by forest management. Future Forests: Adaptation to Climate Change presents helps readers in the fields of climate change science, forest science, and conservation biology develop a thorough understanding the broad perspective of climate change on forests, the response of forests to these changes and other climate-forest interaction potentials.
