Global Warming and Maple Syrup

There's an interesting analysis of the effects of global warming on maple syrup production over at World Climate News blog. Sweet News for Maple Syrup concludes that the future does not spell the end of syrup production in the usual places (such as Québec and New England).

In fact, "it is reasonable to assume that by adapting to climate change by moving the conventional tapping period, the number of sapflow days can be maintained at present day levels."
