Integrated Assessment of Canadian Forest Vulnerability to Climate Change

Forest  vulnerability  to  climate  change  is  composed  of  three  components:  “exposure”  refers  to  the  magnitude  of environmental change, “sensitivity” defines the degree to which a species is likely to be affected by (or respond to) climate change, and “adaptive capacity” describes the species capacity to cope with the expected changes through acclimation or adaptation. This 2-part webinar series will describe recent advances in the quantification of these three vulnerability components in Canadian forests and will discuss their implication in developing “climate friendly” silvicultural practices.
