Ecoregional Vulnerability Assessments
Eight vulnerability assessments have been developed through the Climate Change Response Framework. Each vulnerability assessment provides the best available information about future changes in climate and the potential effects on the forest ecosystems in that particular region. The assessments are designed for natural resource managers and identify the key characteristics that increase or minimize risk in forest communities.
Our work in urban forests, initially piloted in the Chicago area, now includes many cities and urban areas across the Midwest and Northeast.
