A Climate Change Assessment of Vegetation, Fire, and Ecosystem Services for Tribal lands in the Pacific Northwest

December 19, 2017 - 10:00am to 11:00am

What will you learn?

Researchers from the USFS PNW Research Station and Case Research synthesized model projections of changes in vegetation and fire across tribal lands in the PNW. They will demonstrate how these changes will impact economically and culturally important ecosystem services and how this information can be used for adaptation planning.

Presenter:

Michael Case is a Research Scientist and has more than 15 years of experience assessing the climate change vulnerability of species and ecosystems. Applying this information, he works with federal, state, tribal, and non-profit organizations to implement adaptation strategies. He has both Masters and PhD degrees from the University of Washington and worked as a Research Scientist for World Wildlife Fund’s International Climate Change Program for 5 years.
