Climate change is still a major issue for forestry and forest sciences and has impacts on forests in a multitude of ways. The Special Issue covers all aspects of climate change on forests spanning topics from the natural sciences to social sciences and economics. It especially welcomes papers covering the following aspects:
Impacts of climate change on the species distribution of forest ecosystems;
Impacts of climate change on abiotic and biotic hazards in forests;
Economic impacts of climate change on forests;
Risk management in forestry under climate change;
Adaptation strategies to climate change for forest management;
Mitigation vs. adaptation;
Modelling of forest ecosystems under different climate change scenarios.
