Projected Shifts in Forest Types

Projected Shifts in Forest Types

The maps show current and projected forest types. Major changes are projected for many regions. For example, in the Northeast, under a mid-range warming scenario, the currently dominant maple-beech-birch forest type is projected to be completely displaced by other forest types in a warmer future.1  Image Reference: NAST2
