  author={Tomasz Jaworski and Jacek Hilszczański},
Abstract Ongoing climate change is mainly evident as increased in average temperature. It is expected to have a significant impact on world’s biomes, with forest ecosystems especially vulnerable to these changes. The effect of climate change on forests is both indirect, through its impact on various tree species of different ecological requirements, and direct, through its impact on all living components of the forest ecosystem. Among the latter, insects are the group of the greatest importance… 
From Climate Change and Biodiversity Towards Sustainable Agriculture
Agriculture is part of the both problem and solution of climatic change besides being one of the most important entire global financial systems. Human pressure on climate is changing quite faster
Predicting the potential distribution and forest impact of the invasive species Cydalima perspectalis in Europe
This work studied the distribution and severe defoliation processes of the box tree moth (Cydalima perspectalis W.), a tree defoliator insect native to Asia and invasive in Europe since 2007, through the combination of species distribution models based on climate and landscape composition information.
Beetles and Meteorological Conditions: A Case Study
The meteorological factors study in the beetle population dynamics, as well as its association with vegetation, is of fundamental importance for understanding the variation that occurs in its
Abiotic and Biotic Disturbances Affecting Forest Health in Poland over the Past 30 Years: Impacts of Climate and Forest Management
Changes in the health of forests and their biological diversity in Poland in the context of weather extremes, species composition, forest management, the forest industry, and damage from insects and pathogenic fungi over the last 30 years are described.
Plant Phenology and Its Anthropogenic and Natural Influencing Factors in Densely Populated Areas During the Economic Transition Period of China
As a sensitive, observable, and comprehensive indicator of climate change, plant phenology has become a vital topic of global change. Studies about plant phenology and its responses to climate change
Adaptation of Forest Trees to Rapidly Changing Climate
This work compares scientific evidence that species distribution and survival are possible due to phenotypic plasticity and thermal memory with studies that testify that trees’ phenology depends on phylogenesis, and creates a juxtaposition of literature useful in identifying the factors that play key roles in these processes.
Temporal changes in arthropod activity in tropical anthropogenic forests
It is found that changes in the composition of arthropod communities were significantly associated with maximum temperature in all the three forests, but shifts were reversed in the UOF compared with the other forests, suggesting arthropods in forests in Peninsular Malaysia face a double threat.
Seasonal diversity of Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) is more complex than thought: evidence from a tropical dry forest of Mexico
It is found that the Cerambycidae family showed a more complex response to climate, than simply the rainy and dry season of the year, and four seasonal communities which were synchronized with phenological processes of the TDF.
Current Problems and Tasks of Forest Protection in Poland
Abstract Current problems of forest protection concern the declining health of forest stands due to climate change and the resulting extreme weather events such as heat waves, droughts, hurricane
Cerambycid Beetle Communities in Caatinga Dry Forests Are Structured by Seasonal Species Turnover.
Dry forests in the Caatinga biome of Brazil are seasonal ecosystems where diversity is driven by water availability. Understanding how the distribution of communities is driven by temporal climate


Forests and climate change - lessons from insects
An increase of temperature may alter the mechanism by which the insects adjust their cycles to the local climate, resulting in faster development and higher feeding rate, as in the case of the spruce web-spinning sawfly outbreaks in the Southern Alps.
Assessing the impacts of global warming on forest pest dynamics
Forest insects and pathogens are the most pervasive and important agents of disturbance in North American forests, affecting an area almost 50 times larger than fire and with an economic impact
Herbivory in global climate change research: direct effects of rising temperature on insect herbivores
Future research needs to consider insect herbivore phenotypic and genotypic flexibility, their responses to global change parameters operating in concert, and awareness that some patterns may only become apparent in the longer term.
Herbivory in global climate change research: direct effects of rising temperature on insect herbivores
This review examines the direct effects of climate change on insect herbivores. Temperature is identi®ed as the dominant abiotic factor directly affecting herbivorous insects. There is little
How are insects responding to global warming
Global average surface temperature has increased by around 0.6 oC during the past century and will continue to rise in the future. Understanding how these changes in climate have affected biological
Adaptation to climate change in forest management
Adaptation in forestry is sustainable forest management that includes a climate change focus. Climate change over the next 100 years is expected to have significant impacts on forest ecosystems. The
Adaptation of trees, forests and forestry to climate change.
It is concluded that the recent emphasis on sustainable multi­ functional forestry and the current ownership structure in Poland will facilitate adaptation of Polish forests to future climates, however, much remains to be learned about the impacts of climate change, especially at the ecosystem level.
