Climate change could cause abrupt British vegetation changes

Up to now, climate-driven abrupt shifts in vegetation have been rare in Great Britain.

Since they found early warning signals as well, there is potential to predict abrupt vegetative shifts. But for now, the model merely illustrates that it could happen.
