Climate Adaptation Needs Assessment
Natural resource professionals need scientifically credible, relevant, and timely information on climate change, its effects on ecosystems, and potential management options in order to effectively respond to climate change. The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science and Forest Stewards Guild are seeking input on key areas of uncertainty where natural resource and and conservation professionals have questions and science could be developed to answer their needs on a more local scale. By taking a few minutes to answer the questions below, you will be helping us to frame important questions and develop resources to help our community of practice adapt forests to the changing climate. Thank you for your input!
