Climate Change Effects on Freshwater and Marine and Coastal Ecosystems in the North Pacific LCC

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service commissioned two reports that compile literature and synthesize information about climate change effects and adaptation approaches for freshwater and for marine and coastal ecosystems in the entire range of the North Pacific LCC. Prepared by National Wildlife Federation, these reports include the latest science and information with over 400 resources reviewed and over 100 people interviewed. The draft final reports were reviewed by 63 reviewers and will be finalized later this summer.
