Climate Adaptation Science for Coastal Habitats, Species, and Ecosystems

Wednesday, April 3, 2019 - 12:00pm
Eastern Daylight Time
Speaker: 
Michelle Staudinger, NE CASC and USGS
Webinar Location: 
134 Morrill Science Center or via remote connection (see webinar information, above)

In this talk, NE CASC Science Coordinator Michelle Staudinger, will present a compilation information to help to develop a more comprehensive understanding of how coastal ecosystems will respond to climate change and how land and resource management decisions could potentially help these systems.  As the effects of climate change on ecological and human communities grow, the possibility of crossing tipping points or thresholds of viability increases the potential for rapid and possibly irreversible changes in ecosystems. This talk synthesizes information from NE CASC projects Critical thresholds and ecosystem services for coastal ecological and human climate adaptation and Ecological and management implications of climate change induced shifts in phenology of coastal fish and wildlife species in the NE CASC region.

These brown-bag talks provide brief updates on NE CASC activities and provide opportunities for participants to ask questions and join in discussions.
