The research from the University of Exeter found that even "smooth" climate shifts could change Britain. Warmer and wetter weather conditions, as well as more CO2 in the atmosphere, could lead to more greenery in certain parts of the country. In other parts, the heat could dry out the soil, reducing plant productivity and decreasing vegetation rapidly. Dr Chris Boulton, of the Global Systems Institute at the University of Exeter, said: “The general expected trend towards warmer, wetter weather is likely to cause an overall increase in vegetation in temperate places like Great Britain.“However, we wanted to find out whether even ‘smooth’ climate change might lead to abrupt shifts in vegetation. A lot of research has focused on ‘tipping points’ in large systems like rainforests and oceans.“Our study doesn’t predict abrupt shifts across the whole of Great Britain — 0.5-1.5 percent of the land area depending on the climate scenario — but it shows numerous shifts can happen on a localized level.“We also find early warning signals before some of the abrupt shifts. This is good news as it shows the potential for being able to predict them in th...
