Abstract

The Central Hardwood region contains a mosaic of forests, woodlands, savannas, and other ecosystems that will increasingly be affected by a changing climate over the next century. Understanding potential impacts is important to sustaining healthy forests under changing conditions. The objectives of the Climate Change Response Framework (forestadaptation.org) are to develop partnerships among the science and management communities, assess climate change vulnerabilities, and provide tools to integrate climate change information into forest management.
