Effect climate change on tree species North Thailand

Climat change Thailand

Three-annular plot inventories and computer models of plant distributions show that the number of species in North Thailand may remain the same in the future, but many species will disappear and many species from the north of Thailand will migrate to Thailand. The models in the picture show the situation for 2070 under the mildest climate change scenario (RCP 2.6) and the most severe one (RCP 8.5).
