What are the impacts of climate change on maple syrup production and can we manage for them?

November 29, 2017 - 3:30pm

The production of maple syrup is strongly tied to climate since sap flows only when temperatures fluctuate around freezing. Climate change will likely impact the production of maple syrup and the livelihoods on which this depends. ACERnet (Acer Climate and Socio-Ecological Research Network) is filling in knowledge gaps in how climate influences total sap flow and sap quality over the entire tapping season and in how maple producers are responding to climate change.

Engaging managers in forest adaptation science and application in the northern forest region

December 6, 2017 - 3:30pm

Changing climate and disturbance regimes and invasive species greatly threaten the long-term structure and function of forested habitats across northeastern North America.  As such, there is great urgency to develop forest conservation and management strategies that minimize these impacts and increase long-term adaptation potential.
