Projected effects of climate change and fire severity on paludified area for the period 2011–2100. A) Fire cycle was maintained at 400 years throughout the projection. B) Fire cycle was adjusted according to projections by Bergeron et al. (2010) for a region covering northeastern Ontario and northwestern Quebec; in 2041, fire cycle = 300 years; in 2071, fire cycle = 250 years; in 2100, fire cycle = 200 years.
