Between floods, severe storms, and wildfires, nearly everyone in North America has recently experienced an extreme weather event firsthand. Extreme events will become more commonplace as the climate continues to change. These events pose new challenges for forestry and natural resource management that may require new, adaptive ways of thinking to address them.
An introductory presentation on “Wild Cards” in natural resource planning and NIACS’s Adaptation Workbook will set the stage for this mini-series and provide context for the following sessions. Thereafter, we will explore three different types of extreme weather events, showcasing the latest research on these topics and discussing relevant management implications.
