If the most optimistic projections of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) come true and the temperature in the areas with remnants of the Atlantic Rainforest increases by up to 2 degrees Celsius, the geographic distribution of trees in this forest could show a 30% reduction by 2100. If, however, the IPCC’s worst-case scenario were to occur and global warming reaches 4 degrees Celsius, the reduction could reach 65%.
