Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Forests are a critical component of the global carbon cycle and have an important role in efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change. Forests will also be fundamentally affected by climate change in their composition, functioning and distribution. Different management approaches will be required that anticipate and address the potential implications of climate change whether forests are being managed primarily for conservation, production, protection or other uses. Forests are also a vital part of comprehensive, landscape-scale adaptation responses to climate change particularly in the developing world.

This special issue is seeking contributions on climate change adaptation in the management of planted and natural forests. It provides an opportunity for researchers to present the results of studies on the biophysical impacts of climate change on forests and for those working on potential management or policy responses to climate change. It aims to provide an up-to-date compendium of recent research in this field from around the world.
