    Description

    Current predictive tools, management options, restoration paradigms, and conservation programs are insufficient to meet the challenges of climate change in western North America. Scientific and management capabilities and resources will be sapped trying to identify risks to genetic resources and ecosystems and determine new approaches for mitigating and managing changing environments. Developing new tools will require innovative research, improvement and creation of predictive models, continuous evaluation of management outcomes, and integration with social scientists and economists.
