Forestry and Climatic Change
The earth's climate appears to be in an unstable period and may be undergoing change. Climatic fluctuations over the relatively short period of decades have biological and socioeconomic ramifications of importance to foresters and other land managers. They may be a precursor for ecological events affecting length of growing season, precipitation distribution, species distribution and decline, marginal habitats, tree growth, pathogen activity, and possibly wildfire occurrence and intensity. Land management and planning precepts need to be evaluated in respect to recent findings of atmospheric research, and climatic change considered as a factor in forest planning and ecological mechanisms.
