Research highlights climate risk to Australian eucalypts

Research at the National Environmental Research Program (NERP) Environmental Decisions Hub has found that heat waves, droughts and floods expected under climate change will alter environmental conditions so much that many eucalypts will no longer survive in their native ranges. Many of Australia’s iconic eucalypt ecosystems could change beyond recognition due to increased climate stress, and replanting is unlikely to help woodlands and forests persist.
