Description: The earth's climate has undergone dramatic and long-term changes through natural processes many millennia before humans influenced global climate. Considerable evidence indicates that increasing concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the earth's atmosphere will lead to near-term warming, perhaps as much as 2 to 4°C in northeastern North America. Given that the distribution of vegetation on earth has varied with past climate change, it is reasonable to expect that future climate change will affect forest composition and distribution.
