‘State of nature’ important in determining the impact of climate change

Current models of how vegetation will react to climate change do not consider the state of the vegetation - whether it is mature and stable, or already responding to some disturbance event.

New research from one of the world’s longest running climate change experiments, which is funded by the European Commission (EU-FP7 INCREASE infrastructure) and led by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, and European partners, including Bangor University was published today in Nature Communications (24th March 2015, DOI: 10.1038/ncomms7682).
