The Carbon the World Forgot: Conserving the Capacity of Canada's Boreal Forest Region to Mitigate and Adapt to Climate Change

November 2009   |   Report
Boreal Songbird Initiative and the Canadian Boreal Initiative

Previous research on forests and climate change underestimated both the amount and depth of carbon stored in boreal forests. In addition, intact boreal forests will be vital for species affected by climate change, particularly species who will be forced to shift ranges. Keeping the boreal forest intact is the best way to prevent the carbon it stores from being released and to ensure species affected by climate change a shot at survival.
