As we consider the possible positive and negative implications of a warming climate, we often consider the increased productivity of vegetation as a potential positive impact. A recent study by researchers at Keele University explored these considerations further. Focusing on forest ecosystems oriented around European Beech trees the study found that, “the benefits that the warming climate brings to the trees—an increased amount of seeds being produced—are offset by the negative impacts, as pollination becomes less effective and more seeds are lost to predators each year.” Could these findings be translated to other ecosystems?
