Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The emissions of greenhouse gases from human activities have caused rapid changes in the climate and other environment. Because of the long longevity of trees and forests and the variation and complexity of the environmental conditions that they grow in, it is particularly important for us to better understand how trees and forests respond to the continued changes in the climate and environment so that we can reliably project the future performance and structure of forests and trees.

This Special Issue welcomes papers that explore how trees and forests respond to climatic variation and other environmental factors across all levels, ranging from the molecular and individual tree perspectives to entire forest ecosystems and landscapes.
