Abstract

Beginning in 2008, and funded by The Wildlife Conservation Society, the Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences (Manomet) and the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (DFW) within the Department of Fish and Game (DFG) began a cooperative effort to determine: (1) how vulnerable Massachusetts fish and wildlife habitats and Species in Greatest Need of Conservation are likely to be to climate change; and (2) how conservation and management practices could be adapted or created to respond to a rapidly changing climate.

Previous reports from this work describe how the climate is likely to change in Massachusetts over the current century, and the likely vulnerabilities of fish and wildlife and their habitats to a changing climate (Manomet and DFW, 2010a; and Manomet and DFW, 2010b, respectively). This report provides at least partial answers to the second question: how valued ecological resources might be effectively managed as climatic conditions continue to change.
