Description: Siberian forest ecosystems are experiencing multiple global changes. Climate change produces direct (temperature and precipitation) and indirect (altered fire regimes and increase in cold-limited insect outbreaks) effects. Although much of Siberia has not yet been subject to timber harvest, the frontier of timber cutting is advancing steadily across the region. We investigated questions about the ability of broad silvicultural strategies to reduce losses to disturbance, maintain the abundance of preferred species, mitigate fragmentation and loss of age class diversity, and sequester above-ground carbon under future climate conditions in Siberia.
