In November 2007, Rocky Mountain National Park convened a two-day workshop on the ecological implications of climate change for the park. With the help of the Center of the American West, the National Park Service brought together many of the region’s leading biologists, physical scientists, and climatologists to assess the state of the science on the ecological consequences of climate change for the park, to determine priorities and needs in monitoring and research, and to suggest possible mitigation strategies. Over two days of presentations and deliberation, workshop participants worked toward a consensus view of the changes that the park will likely undergo as the region experiences climate warming. This publication is a synthesis of the presentations and discussions at the workshop. (Download PDF)
