Methods for translating narrative scenarios into quantitative assessments of land use change
In the land use and land cover (LULC) literature, narrative scenarios are qualitative descriptions of plausible futures associated with a combination of socio-economic, policy, technological, andExpand

Climate change effects on northern Great Lake (USA) forests: A case for preserving diversity
Under business as usual (BAU) management, stresses posed by climate change may exceed the ability of Great Lake forests to adapt. Temperature and precipitation projections in the Great Lakes regionExpand

Three-dimensional canopy fuel loading predicted using upward and downward sensing LiDAR systems
Abstract We calibrated upward sensing profiling and downward sensing scanning LiDAR systems to estimates of canopy fuel loading developed from field plots and allometric equations, and then used theExpand

Measuring and managing resistance and resilience under climate change in northern Great Lake forests (USA)
ContextClimate change will have diverse and interacting effects on forests over the next century. One of the most pronounced effects may be a decline in resistance to chronic change and resilience toExpand

Recovery dynamics and climate change effects to future New England forests
ContextForests throughout eastern North America continue to recover from broad-scale intensive land use that peaked in the nineteenth century. These forests provide essential goods and services atExpand

How disturbance, competition, and dispersal interact to prevent tree range boundaries from keeping pace with climate change
Climate change is expected to cause geographic shifts in tree species' ranges, but such shifts may not keep pace with climate changes because seed dispersal distances are often limited andExpand

Michigan forest ecosystem vulnerability assessment and synthesis: a report from the Northwoods Climate Change Response Framework project
Forests in northern Michigan will be affected directly and indirectly by a changing climate during the next 100 years. This assessment evaluates the vulnerability of forest ecosystems in Michigan'sExpand

Climate change imposes phenological trade‐offs on forest net primary productivity
Climate warming is expected to lengthen growing seasons of temperate forest ecosystems and increase gross primary productivity. Simultaneously, warming is expected to increase summer ecosystemExpand

An imputed forest composition map for New England screened by species range boundaries
Initializing forest landscape models (FLMs) to simulate changes in tree species composition requires accurate fine-scale forest attribute information mapped continuously over large areas.Expand

Forest loss in New England: A projection of recent trends
New England has lost more than 350,000 ha of forest cover since 1985, marking a reversal of a two-hundred-year trend of forest expansion. We a cellular land-cover change model to project aExpand
