We know that the climate is changing. All living things have one of three options: move, adapt or die. Migrating to a more suitable climate is a typical response from animals. But plants, which we think of as stationary organisms, can do that too. Indeed, we expect that many plant communities may shift to new territories, more suitable for their preferred lifestyle (in terms of air temperature, rainfall and amount of sunlight). Will they find such places, though? We set off to try to understand that change better.
