Climate Change and Ecosystems

30 October 2019

This report, a summary of the 2018 US-UK Science Forum, presents the latest science on how climate change can affect terrestrial, aquatic and marine ecosystems and also how ecosystems can help to mitigate and adapt to climate change. It addresses current research frontiers such as the effects of change in climate variability and extremes; interactions among multiple stressors; thresholds and the potential for abrupt change; and multi-trophic interactions. It also explores the science and policy dimensions to this challenge, drawing on examples across a range of terrestrial, aquatic and marine ecosystems.
