Background:

This 2011 symposium featured research on the projected impacts of climatic changes on vegetation, with an emphasis on practical assessment and management. The videos from the symposium represent a synthesis of recent thinking on the topic of climatic change. Presentation topics range from methods for predicting tree range shifts under future climates to the connection between climate change and forest disturbances.

Climate Change – Impacts and Effects on Vegetation was part of the 2011 US- International Association for Landscape Ecology (IALE) Annual Symposium in Portland, OR (http://www.usiale.org). The theme of the 2011 Symposium was Sustainability in Dynamic Landscapes. For more information on IALE, please see the website: http://www.landscape-ecology.org/
