New research finds forests worldwide are vulnerable due to a rapidly warming Earth.  There is increasing risks of drought, heat-induced tree mortality and forest die-off.  These events result mainly due to a combination of droughts and warmer temperatures due to climate change.

The research anticipates that there will be major reorganisations in forest ecosystems due to increased tree mortality from warmer temperatures.  Scientists also expect to see widespread declines in forest productivity, changes in species composition and dominance, a shift to smaller sized trees and some reductions in forest extent.
