Management in Transition: Adapting to a Changing World

With predictions of a rapidly changing climate, altered disturbance regimes, and continually expanding population, what classic and novel management approaches will provide resistant, resilient, and healthy ecosystems into the future? How do we adapt our land management practices to reflect these changes? Applying new developments in ecosystem science is critical to protecting our ecological services and informing land management.
