Climate Change:  Ecosystem Impacts and Management Strategies for the Midwest U.S.

68th Midwest Fish & Wildlife Conference in Madison, Wisconsin
10-11 December 2007

Symposium organizers:  Michael Meyer (Wisconsin DNR) and Kevin Kenow (USGS)

A symposium titled ‘Climate Change: Ecosystem Impacts and Management Strategies For the Midwest U.S’ was held at the 68th Midwest Fish & Wildlife Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, 10-11 December 2007.This symposium was a great venue and opportunity to bring together scientists from throughout the Upper Midwest to critically evaluate the current information on climate change in the region, and help identify the most important research needs to support scientifically-based regulations to minimize effects of climate change on forests, aquatic resources, and fish and wildlife populations. To reach a wider audience, many of the presenters have provided related abstracts and presentations (as pdf files) for posting on this web page. Contributions to this web page have not gone through the USGS review and approval process.
