Description: Ecosystems are changing in response to observed changes in climate, extreme events, and disturbances such as fire and insects. We read not only that these changes are occurring but that we should expect them to continue - changes in temperature; more extreme events; and more disturbances such as fire and insects that are not like the past. Key point: these changes in climate and ecosystems are now part of the environment in which resource management occurs.

Keywords: National Forests, climate change, ecosystems
