Description: Ongoing climate change will likely expose trees and forests to new stresses and disturbances during this century. Trees naturally adapt to changes in climate, but their natural adaptive ability may be compromised by the rapid changes projected for this century. In the broad sense, adaptation to climate change also includes the purposeful adaptation of human systems, which includes forestry. In this article, we briefly review the expected impacts of projected climate change on trees and forest ecosystems in Poland.
Keywords: adaptation strategy, management, resistance, resilience, sustainable forestry
