Global Climate Change: What Could Happen to Our Northern Forests?
Environmental scientists are being called on to provide information about possible outcomes of global climate change for the public and policymakers. Some initial outcomes are clear to see, such as the melting of polar icecaps and mountain glaciers. Others are visible only to the experienced eye, and the far-reaching results may not be immediately apparent. Scientists at the U.S. Forest Service's Northern Research Station (NRS) have been studying possible effects of climate change on our forests.
