Tuesday, January 15, 2019 - 10:00 to 11:00 Webinar Series: 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.
