Predicted shift of diversity of tree species in North America due to climate change

"Estimated tree species richness under (A) current climatic conditions (1971–2000) and (B) future climatic conditions (2071–2100). Future climatic conditions were based on the A2 emissions scenario of the Canadian CGM3.1 model" (After McKenney et al. 2011.)
