Fragile and yet highly important, forests are ecosystems that are increasingly susceptible to the risks of global environmental changes: pests, droughts and more frequent and intense extreme weather. Mathematical models can now simulate these future scenarios and help us understand how forests will behave in the face of anticipated changes such as rising temperatures and enable governments to be more prepared in their response to unexpected events.
