If you are unsure about where to begin integrating climate change into natural resource planning, you are not alone. This presentation offers some useful suggestions.
Observed ecological changes associated with a change in climate include the advance of spring events, species distribution changes, community shifts and asynchrony in species interactions.
Rather than treating climate change as one additional management challenge, it is essential to consider the effects of climate change in all plans and activities.
Reviews the history of the Renewable Resources Planning Act (RPA) and how climate change is being incorporated.
The Alder Spring project in the Mendocino National Forest is a case study in climate change mitigation.
Implications of climate change on western fishes, some of the most at-risk species in the U.S.
U.S. forests play a large role in offsetting carbon emissions, about 20 % of the U.S. fossil fuel carbon output. If a forest replaces itself after a disturbance like fire, then there is no long-term loss of carbon.
