A warming climate is already altering some aspects of natural resources in the Pacific Northwest and other areas of western North America. In the future, an increase in ecological disturbances (fire, insects, and other stressors) will modify forest ecosystems, especially in drier regions, creating significant ecological, social, and economic challenges. Assertive action may help delay some negative effects and ease the transition to a permanently warmer world.

Dave Peterson, a Research Biologist with the U.S. Forest Service, has conducted research on the effects of climatic variability and change on forest ecosystems throughout western North America. His work focuses on forest ecology, fire ecology, and applications of biological science in resource management.

Dr. Peterson is with the U.S. Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station and heads the Fire and Environmental Research Applications Team of the Pacific Wildland Fire Sciences Laboratory.
