Climate change is threatening the capacity of forests to provide its various services by causing, among other events, milder winters and increased freezethaw cycling in the soil and drier and warmer summers that create water stress for plants. Canada is committed to maintaining forests that are resilient to current and imminent global change. To forecast forest response to climate change, scientists have recently recognized the need to develop models not just based on regional climates, but also based on the reorganization of interactions between tree species and between trees and soils as well as possible feedbacks. The longterm objective of this research program is to characterize soilplant interrelationships and nutrient cycling in eastern Canadian temperate deciduous forests under a changing climate.
