Critical components of plant replacement (regeneration) include seed dormancy loss, germination, and seedling establishment.  These components, in particular, show potentially greater sensitivity to climate change then do subsequent development stages.  While temperature and moisture are critical factors for these early developmental stages, other factors such a soil texture, nutrient level, pH, luminous intensity, and light spectrum could all be influential in these stages.
