One of the many applications of biological field data is their inclusion in predictive models. Such models are now being used to address questions facing society such as how will forest vegetation respond to a warming climate? What tree species are likely to be affected most? Models have been developed to help scientists predict how species might respond under a variety of future climatic scenarios. This chapter introduces some of the ways these predictions are being made and what the future may hold for Illinois trees.
