Abstract

Research on changes in a coupled marine system of the Mid-Atlantic Bight, focusing on Atlantic surfclams and the associated fishery and management system, is reviewed for how the human dimensions of this coupled socio-ecological system are addressed by the researchers.

Abstract

Learn about climate adaptation activities in the Southeast United States, focusing on water resources in 11 states in the Southeast including- Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Arkansas, and Florida - as well as Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

MaPP Marine Plan Portal

CA
Tool Overview: 

The MaPP Marine Plan Portal is a sophisticated tool that allows users to look at the MaPP sub-regional marine spatial plan zones, get information on recommended uses and activities for each zone, view a variety of data layers related to the planning process and plan implementation and learn more about the North Pacific Coast of British Columbia – the MaPP study area. The portal displays the approved MaPP sub-regional marine spatial plan zones and has more than 250 data layers including administrative boundaries, species, habitats and marine uses. The Marine Plan Portal can be used to:

NOAA's Ocean Climate Change Web Portal

US
Tool Overview: 

 The NOAA/ESRL Physical Sciences Division (PSD) conducts weather and climate research to observe and understand Earth's physical environment, and to improve weather and climate predictions on global-to-local scales. This is an experimental web tool designed to explore changes projected in the oceans by coupled climate models' CMIP5 experiments (historical, RCP8.5 and RCP4.5).

Organization Overview: 

Cal-IPC's mission is to protect California's lands and waters from ecologically-damaging invasive plants through science, education and policy.

Abstract

Climate resilience is a high priority for protecting wildlife habitat and ecosystem services. The health of watersheds is critical for protecting water quality downstream. Invasive plant management can protect such ecological function and support resilience to climate change. This report describes our perspective on connections between invasive plant management and climate resiliency, and provides guidance for land managers on how they can incorporate climate resilience into their invasive plant management projects.

Abstract

The Sierra Nevada mountains of California are predicted to have strong changes with climate change. One of the ecological threats that may become worse is the spread and impact of invasive plants. This report summarizes the connections between climate change and invasive plants in mountain meadow ecosystems, and recommends steps that land managers can take now to improve the resilience of meadows into the future. While this report focuses on the Sierra Nevada, its recommendations can be applied other mountain meadow systems.

Abstract

The Washington-British Columbia Transboundary Climate-Connectivity Project was initiated to help address these challenges. The region spanning the border of Washington state, USA, and British Columbia, Canada, faces increasing development pressure and limited transboundary coordination of land and wildlife management, both of which may threaten habitat connectivity and limit the potential for wildlife movement in response to change.

Abstract

Climate change is already changing ecosystems and affecting people in the southwestern United States. Rising temperatures have contributed to large-scale ecological impacts, affecting plants, animals, as well as ecosystem services, e.g., water supply. The climate of the Gunnison Basin, Colorado, is projected to get warmer over the next few decades as part of a larger pattern of warming in the western United States.
