Short summary
Management of forests may be able to mitigate climate change. However, those efforts may be negated by climate change impacts. This project simulated four productivity scenarios for a temperate coniferous forest. The coldest ecoregions were projected to be carbon sinks, but the warmest are at risk of becoming carbon sources to the atmosphere. Effects varied among species and site conditions, indicating that both of these factors need to be considered when planning mitigation and adaptation.
