On the other hand, their stability and maintenance are undermined by the predictions of climate change. This dual position is currently the focus of many societal and scientific interests.

    Forests are nowadays at the centre of global environmental issues. On the one hand, they are called upon to meet an increasing number of services and needs. On the other hand, their stability and maintenance are undermined by the predictions of climate change. This dual position is currently the focus of many societal and scientific interests. Can forests meet current ecological challenges, even though their future is uncertain? A relevant way to answer this question is to look back at the past evolution of forests to understand their adaptation strategies to environmental crises such as climate change. Forests have been repeatedly subjected to large-scale environmental changes during the Quaternary period, and paleogenetics and paleobotany allow us to reconstruct their evolutionary trajectories. In a second part, the current impacts of climate change and, more generally, of global change on forests will be discussed. Finally, in the third part, the adaptation capacities of trees under the effect of biological evolution or anthropic interventions will be developed before evoking their real capacities of mitigation of the current climatic modifications.
