Description: Climate change affects forests and grasslands in many ways. Changes in temperature and precipitation affect plant productivity as well as some species' habitat. Changes in key climate variables affect the length of the fire season and the seasonality of National Forest hydrological regimes. Also, invasive species tend to adapt to climate change more easily and increase extinction risks for native species.

Keywords: climate change, National Forest, Forest Service strategic goals, synthesis and assessment products, SAPs
