The Cascading Effects of Recents Droughts on Forests in Germany

Droughts in Germany, recent and in the near future, did and will increase over time in intensity and frequency. For forests, this results in a lot of negative effects, like reduction in forest productivity, loss of vitality, and eventually even mortality. This is followed by a drastic change in forest composition due to new and different site conditions. Therefore, these droughts represent a major challenge for our society, especially in the field of forestry.
