By 2100, climate change is predicted to warm high-latitude summers by 3–8 °C (ACIA 2005, Christensen et al. 2007). High temperatures will become more common in the boreal region and, in the absence of significantly increased precipitation, drought frequency and intensity will increase. Much of the North American boreal consists of forests dominated by black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.), a major timber crop that dominates frequently flooded soils, but has shallow roots (<20 cm deep) and… CONTINUE READING
