Forests, which today cover 30 percent of the world

Knowledge about an insect species

Climate vulnerability mapping is used to predict areas where climate change will have drastic effects on given tree species or populations, so they can be prioritized for conservation.

Climate envelope modelling is used to predict possible shifts in the distribution of Pinus kesiya and P. merkusii, which could have implications for the conservation and use of their genetic resources.

A devastating outbreak of mountain pine beetle in the province of British Columbia, Canada creates challenges

Strategies for sustainable development and climate change adaptation have many common elements, so addressing them jointly can create synergies.

A synthesis of observations from the international conference on Adaptation of Forests and Forest Management to Changing Climate with Emphasis on Forest Health, held in Ume

An innovative attempt to create a standard for certifying forestbased medicinal and aromatic plants (MAPs) by adapting global norms for national-level implementation.

Agricultural expansion, opening of new roads and migration of people to unexploited areas are all major causes of Amazon deforestation; thus many sectors share the responsibility for reversing it.

Promoting forest restoration and sustainable forest management has more promise for mitigating climate change than narrowly focusing on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD).
