Natural resource professionals need scientifically credible, relevant, and timely information on climate change, its effects on ecosystems, and potential management options in order to effectively respond to climate change. The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science and Forest Stewards Guild sought out input on key areas of uncertainty where managers have questions so that we can help promote science to address managers' needs. This work is being complied into a report, which is expected to be available in winter of 2019-20.
