Abstract [en]

Forests are an important store of carbon within the global carbon cycle and increasinglyplay a role in climate change adaptation and mitigation. The review illustrates that thecultural, economic and environmental services of forests that are utilized for tourismand recreation are being affected by climate change. In addition to the changes to thedistribution and composition of forests as a result of climate change, forest tourism isalso affected by changes in frequency and intensity of fires, storm damage and theintroduction of alien species. On examining the relevant literature on forests, tourismand climate change, the review identifies the need for a greater understanding oftourist perception of forest change as a major research task. There is also a need forbetter understanding of systemic effects of tourism-related climate change adaptationand mitigation policies on forest conservation and deforestation. The need for furtherresearch of urban forests and woodlands for climate change adaptation and mitigationand their potential implications for tourism and leisure is also highlighted.
