Effects of Drought on Forests and Rangelands in the United States: A Comprehensive Science Synthesis
James M. Vose (ed); James S. Clark (ed); Charles H. Luce (ed); Toral Patel-Weynand (ed)
This assessment provides input to the reauthorized National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) and the National Climate Assessment (NCA), and it establishes the scientific foundation needed to manage for drought resilience and adaptation. Focal areas include drought characterization; drought impacts on forest processes and disturbances such as insect outbreaks and wildfire; and consequences for forest and rangeland values. Drought can be a severe natural disaster with substantial social and economic consequences. Large-stand-level impacts of drought are already underway in the West, but all U.S. forests are vulnerable. Options to mitigate drought include altering structural or functional components of vegetation, minimizing drought-mediated disturbance such as wildfire or insect outbreaks, and managing for reliable flow of water. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
