A multiple-species assessment of relative genetic degradation risk from climate change and other threats

Climate change is expected to pose a threat to the viability of forest tree species, which may be forced either to adapt to new conditions or to shift their ranges to more favorable environments. Changing climate conditions and threats of pest and pathogen infestation will increase the risk that forest trees could experience population-level extirpation or widespread decreases in productivity during the next century.
