Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
How do climatic changes affect the distribution of tree species? A Critical Analysis of current literature in bio-geography
Bio-geography is a rapidly evolving field with a wide variety of applications in conservation biology and global change science. With the above in mind, the ensuing several pages will look at two recent science papers that explore how climactic changes affect the distribution of tree species and what the future holds for tree species as our climate does change; a third article will also be briefly examined to see how it corroborates the findings of the two previous studies. As will become evident, climate change does play some role – but there is evidence that some species are more adaptable than others and that human...
The end:
.....alysis that outlines the relative role played by various factors will have to be undertaken.
