World's forests may be devastated by climate change

A group of forest scientists has warned that unless immediate action is taken, climate change could have a devastating effect on the world's forests and the nearly 1 billion people who depend on them for their livelihoods. The researchers, from the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), called for the implementation of adaptation measures to reduce the vulnerability of forests and forestdependent communities that will experience an unprecedented combination of climate change associated disturbances like flooding, drought, wildfire, and other environmental challenges in the next 100 years. According to "Facing an Uncertain Future: How Forests and People can Adapt to Climate Change", a new book by CIFOR, immediate measures must be taken now to adapt forests to climate change.
