Greenpeace2008: Combating climate change through boreal forest conservation

Last Updated on November 14, 2021 by admin

Climate change is already affecting the boreal forest. Increased temperatures causes increased stress and vulnerability to the forests and the species that live there. Intact forest landscapes and natural forests resist and recover better from fires, storms, insect outbreaks and other types of climate impacts, compared to fragmented areas and plantations. These areas give the trees, plants and animals better possibilities to migrate, adapt and survive in a climate that is changing.
