Abstract

One of the current climate change mitigation strategies is the management of forested ecosystems to ensure that they remain a sink for carbon now and into the future.  With British Columbia’s climate expected to continue to warm into the future, our forests will also change in response.  If a choice is made to manage for carbon as one of the many landscape objectives, forest managers will need to know how best to do so given the likely changes in natural disturbance regimes that may accompany the changing climate.
