The United States Forest Service’s (USFS) Climate Change Resource Center (CCRC) is a collection of forest management resources. It includes an extensive library, climate change and carbon tools, webinars and short courses by topic area and ecosystem, as well as an introductory webinar for new users.
This report details challenges of changing climatic conditions primarily in terms of rural forests, but urban forests ecosystems are also mentioned. Climate variability, its impacts, and risk management strategies are discussed by region.
“Effects of Drought on Forests and Rangelands in the U.S.” aims to help working land managers understand the impacts of drought and build resilience on their lands. It explains how drought is characterized, drought impacts on forest processes and disturbances such as insect outbreaks and wildfire, and consequences for forest values and management considerations.
Effects of Drought on Forests and Rangelands in the United States: A Comprehensive Science Synthesis covers a wide expanse of management issues. The USDA’s Climate Hubs have synthesized the assessment for each of their region’s stakeholders.
