Project Overview

Researchers collected vegetation, climatic, and soil data on long-term plots on Whiteface Mountain in New York and on 11 other mountains across the four Northern Forest states. They determined that while climate envelopes have shifted substantially upslope, tree species distributions and growth have not yet clearly responded to warming.


To further understand the effects of climate change on Northern Forests to inform biodiversity conservation and protected area management.
