The Impacts of Climate Change on Forests and Wildlife

The climate is changing, and it is impacting forests in many ways. The magnitude of continued accelerated change requires adaptation strategies aimed towards maintaining healthy and productive forests. As forests are placed under additional stress it is also critical that we consider how wildlife may respond to a shifting climate and important forest habitats that they depend on. Join Steve Matthews, wildlife professor and ecologist with OSU's School of Environment and Natural Resources as he guides us through climate change impacts. This program was presented as part of the Ohio Woodland Stewards Program. To learn more about their educational programs, visit their website at
