Will provide both an overview of the impacts of climate change and how we can use observed changes (e.g. range shifts) to inform us about conservation implications and point to possible management interventions. New climate models make it easier to explore different possible future scenarios for how the ranges of wild species might shift, contract or expand, but full utilization of these models requires intensive species' location data, with obvious implications for monitoring needs. There is increasing evidence that the impacts of climate change vary widely depending on other anthropogenic stressors. Interactions between climate change and other factors cause difficulties in teasing out their individual effects, but may also provide an opportunity for proactive adaptation to future changed climates. My talk will end with a discussion of management solutions, from the mundane to the extreme.
