State forests may disappear due to climate change according to University of Minnesota research paper
DULUTH -- Substantial areas of what is now Northland forest may someday change to savanna or grassland, according to University of Minnesota scientists detailing the impacts of climate change in a newly published research paper.
The paper predicts Duluth-area forest types -- red and white pine, birch and aspen -- will recede northeast to about Thunder Bay, while prairie-like habitats now common in southern and central Minnesota will move into the North-land.
