A systematic review of ecological attributes that confer resilience to climate change in environmental restoration
Description: "We identified 45 attributes explicitly related to climate change and classified them as individual- (9), population- (6), community- (7), ecosystem- (7), or process-level attributes (16). Individual studies defined resilience as resistance to change or r

Comprehensive Response to Climate Change
Description: Resolution adopted by the State Water Board March 7, 2017. Outlines actions the Board will take in the areas of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, water conservation and efficiency, recycled water, storm water, energy efficiency and renewable energy, impr

Species' traits influenced their response to recent climate change
Description: "Although it is widely accepted that future climatic change -- if unabated -- is likely to have major impacts on biodiversity, few studies have attempted to quantify the number of species whose populations have already been impacted by climate change. Usi

Projected Impacts of Climate, Urbanization, Water Management, and Wetland Restoration on Waterbird Habitat in California's Central Valley
Description: "Future effects of urban development, changes in water supply management, and precipitation and air temperature related to global climate change on area of waterbird habitat in the Central Valley are uncertain, yet potentially substantial. Therefore, we m

Interlinking climate change with water-energy-food nexus and related ecosystem processes in California case studies
Description: "Global climate change creates critical challenges with increasing temperature, reducing snowpack, and changing precipitation for water, energy, and food, as well as ecosystem processes at regional scales. Ecosystem services provide life support, goods, a

Nonlinear, interacting responses to climate limit grassland production under global change
Description: "Global environmental change involves many factors that occur simultaneously, yet they are usually studied in isolation. Here we report a long-term global change experiment that subjected California grassland to multiple individual and simultaneous change

Plant responses to increasing CO2 reduce estimates of climate impacts on drought severity
Description: "We show that the water savings that plants experience under high CO2 conditions compensate for much of the effect of warmer temperatures, keeping the amount of water on land, on average, higher than we would predict with common drought metrics, and with

Managing Climate Change Refugia for Climate Adaptation
Description: "Refugia have long been studied from paleontological and biogeographical perspectives to understand how populations persisted during past periods of unfavorable climate. Recently, researchers have applied the idea to contemporary landscapes to identify cl
