Tthe effects of climate change on aquatic ecosystems are still uncertain. Limited information has been available to guide management decisions but new analytical techniques and spatial data linked to downscaled climate projections could help. This workshop Understanding & Adapting to Climate Change in Aquatic Ecosystems at Landscape and River Basin Scales provides an opportunity for researchers and managers to begin exploring the utility of these techniques.
- Share current information regarding the effects of climate change on aquatic ecosystems.
- Present analysis tools that could assist managers in addressing climate change.
- Discuss management implications of climate change, the utility of existing tools, and future information and analysis needs.
