Briefly in English

The ClimEssences site, proposed by the RMT AFORCE, provides a series of aids for the choice of tree species (forest tree species) in the context of climate change.

The proposed functionalities allow :

  • improve knowledge of tree species,
  • to understand the evolution of the climate according to different climate change scenarios, at the scale of a forest region,
  • to provide tools for thinking about the choice of species in a changing climate.


Two complementary approaches are proposed:

  • Species sheets gathering the available knowledge on species according to 37 criteria,
  • Cartographic models of the climatic compatibility of species using the IKS model.


This site is not yet available in English, but this is planned for the future.
