Projected Changes in Climate for Alberta and Forest Tree Improvement Program Regions

This report is the first in a series of reports and journal articles which will be produced from the Tree Species Adaptation Risk Management project. It covers projections of future climates for selected climatic variables for the entire province and individual tree breeding program regions, also called Controlled Parentage Programs (CPP) regions. These projections will be integrated with the ongoing analysis on biological data and CPP-based climate change risk analysis to address questions on transfer of wild seed among seed zones; transferability of orchard seed and clones among CPP regions; and reconfiguring seed orchards and deciduous species clonal production programs to address future climatic constraints, especially drought tolerance.
