How could climate change affect the species and habitats around us in the Great Lakes region? This webinar will provide information about how:
- Climate change will alter forests and other ecosystems in the Great Lakes by changing the distributions of key species.
- Ecological interactions among organisms can be disrupted by climate change, such as between herbivores and the plants
- Insect outbreaks triggered by climate change may change the structure and function of forests in the Great Lakes and how this is already happening elsewhere
- Climate will alter the lifecycles and distributions of key agricultural pests in the Great Lakes
