Webinar: 1 of 2 Integrated Assessment of Canadian Forest Vulnerability to Climate Change
Tuesday 15 January 2019 - 02:00am - Tuesday 15 January 2019 03:00pm
Tree Vulnerability to Climate Change and Implications for Adaptive Silviculture

 Series overview: 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.

Projected changes in climate conditions vary widely across Canada, and so does the capacity of forest species to cope with these changes.
