In the 10 years since the Kyoto Protocol was first signed in Japan, popular discourse around climate change mitigation has increasingly been dominated by the idea of carbon trading.

The plant species are having to respond both to temperature changes and to moisture changes and to changes in seasonality. It makes a big difference if you have a drier winter versus a drier summer, because some species are 4th Proof_August, 25, 2008 Velma I. Grover 13 more attuned to spring and others to fall. Any current community has a certain mixture, and, if you start changing the climate, you’re changing the temperature, but you’re also changing moisture or the timing of the moisture or the amount of snow and, bingo, species are not going to move together.
