Two Reports Point To Indiana Climate Change

The reports released Tuesday are part of Purdue University’s ongoing Indiana Climate Change Impact Assessment. Temperature change may benefit some animal and plant species, such as the silver maple and sycamore. But he also says the changing habitat could be detrimental to other tree species like the American basswood and Eastern white pine.
