In 2017, the Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Center’s (SW CASC) research focused on a number of high priority topic areas, with a major theme of addressing rising temperatures and climate extremes in the Southwest.
The Northwest CASC, EcoAdapt and Oregon State University recently partnered to assess the available science on climate adaptation actions that are commonly used in response to sea level rise by resource managers in Oregon and Washington.
Inland fish are found in lakes, rivers, streams, canals, reservoirs, and other landlocked waters. Inland fish are vulnerable to a range of threats, including overharvesting, pollution, and changes in water conditions as the climate changes.
Fish and wildlife play crucial roles across ecosystems and in human society. High animal diversity contributes to healthy ecosystems, and many species provide important economic benefits to our communities.
