drought and pests
Drought and pests

Warmth and drought promote epidemics in forests.

Insect and disease epidemics are increasing in number and spreading rapidly.

Drought, pests, and wildfires

  • Warming and crowding increase fire severity in low- to mixed-severity fire regimes.
  • Many large fires are in diseased and drought-stressed forests.
