New tool for monitoring climate effects in temperate marine ecosystems
We are pleased to let you know about a new report, Monitoring Climate Effects in Temperate Marine Ecosystems: A Test Case Using California’s MPAs, which outlines a new and innovative framework for measuring climate change effects and informing adaptive MPA management. The MPA Monitoring Enterprise worked with EcoAdapt to develop an approach to efficiently and effectively track climate change effects that augments ongoing MPA monitoring. This information will not only aid in the interpretation of MPA monitoring results, but also can be designed to inform the management dialogue around potential climate change effects on marine ecosystems and adaptation or mitigation measures. We hope that this can lead to climate-savvy management for better future outcomes.
