Half of Alberta's upland boreal forest is likely to disappear over the next century due to climate change, a new study shows.

 

The upland  will be replaced after wildfire by open woodland or grassland, according to research from University of Alberta biologists, conducted in collaboration with Natural Resources Canada researchers.

"By 2100, at least 50 percent of the boreal upland mixed wood forest could become young deciduous forest and grassland, based on a combination of changes in climate and wildfire," said Diana Stralberg, a recently graduated PhD student in the Department of Biological Sciences.
