From prediction to adaptation: responding to rapid ecosystem shifts under climate change
Grant number: FT100100819 | Funding period: 2011 - 2016
Nobody knows exactly how climate change will affect the ecosystems on which we depend for our own existence, though negative impacts are widely predicted. This project integrates mathematical, economic and ecological approaches to learn about the most effective way to spend limited funds for sustaining ecosystems threatened by climate change.
