Keynote Address
Monitoring Climate Change in Wisconsin:
Recent Evidence and Potential Impacts to Natural Resources

Dr. Chris Kucharik
Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment (SAGE)
The Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies
University of Wisconsin-Madison
The national and local media in recent months have greatly increased its coverage on global warming and climate change. All too often media reports are geared towards effects on the planet as a whole without considering the degree of variability that is occurring or how local natural systems have responded or might respond to future change. This presentation will partially review the science behind climate change, highlight the specifics of climate change occurring across Wisconsin, and will illustrate key examples that demonstrate the reaction of Wisconsin environmental systems. An awareness of these issues is important for everyone monitoring species and habitats, and the observations of citizen scientists can make a valuable contribution to climate change research.
