Session Abstract: Temperate rainforests of the Pacific coastal region have a tight association with cool, moist climates that have provided ideal conditions for rainforest assemblages to persist for up to 7,000 years. A rapidly changing climate coupled with cumulative land-use stressors present unprecedented challenges to managers and conservationists wishing to maintain rainforest ecosystems and the critical ecosystem services we depend upon. Panelists will share lessons learned from adaptation strategies conducted across the region, including key findings, obstacles, and pragmatic steps for answering the question of whether there is sufficient time to save all the pieces.
This video is from a symposium in Juneau, Alaska from April 17-20, 2012 titled Coastal Temperate Rainforests: Integrating Science, Resource Management, and Communities. The Alaska Coastal Rainforest Center (ACRC) would like to thank all sponsors, speakers, and participants for making the symposium a success.
