As the Earth’s climate continues to heat up, forests will have to adapt. Associate Professor Craig Nitschke of The University of Melbourne in Australia studies how the distribution of plant species might change as the climate does.

This brochure introduces Criag’s work, offers an insight into careers in forest ecology, contains an interview with Craig and includes an activity sheet that challenges students to explore the power of forest modelling.
