Mid-Atlantic Forest Ecosystem Vulnerability Assessment Summary and Highlights

Evidence of climate change can already be observed in the Mid-Atlantic region. Understanding vulnerabilities is an important first step to sustaining healthy forests and ecosystems in the face of changing conditions. As part of the Mid-Atlantic Climate Change Response Framework project, more than 40 scientists and forest managers collaborated to assess the vulnerability of forest ecosystems in this region to the range of projected climate change
