Climate Change and Forestry Handbook

The Climate Change & Forestry Handbook was created by the Climate Smart Land Network for professional foresters or landowners interested in a basic understanding of the science, forest impacts, and management implications of climate change. It provides an overview of the most important aspects of this broad and complex topic, while helping index into more detailed resources for those that want or need more information. The Handbook consists of three separate parts:

  • Part 1: A Changing Climate
  • Part 2: Forest Response to Climate Change
  • Part 3: Managing Forests in a Changing Climate

2018 Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change Brief for the United States of America

American Public Health Association

This Brief focuses on connections between climate change and health in the United States (U.S.) in 2017. It draws out some of the most nationally-relevant findings of the global 2018 Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change report with U.S.-specific data to highlight the key threats and opportunities climate change poses for the health of Americans.

New England and Northern New York Forest Ecosystem Vulnerability Assessment and Synthesis: A Report from the New England Climate Change Response Framework Project

Maria Janowiak et al.

This assessment is a fundamental component of the New England Climate Change Response framework project. The Framework is a collaborative, cross­ boundary approach among scientists, managers, and landowners to incorporate climate change considerations into natural resource management. Six Framework projects are currently underway, covering about 250 million acres in the U.S. Midwest and Northeast: Northwoods,  Central Appalachians,  Central Hardwoods, Mid-Atlantic, New England, and Urban. Each regional project interweaves four components: science and management partnerships, vulnerability  assessments, adaptation resources, and demonstration projects.
