In 2010, Forest Service R&D began a nationwide project to better understand the impacts of climate change and the management options available to Tribes and native groups related to this disturbance. Forest Service research stations and field labs have created regional science-manager networks and portfolio studies on specific Tribal and Native groups and their climate change-related needs. These efforts are summarized in the following brochures.
- US Forest Service R&D Summary
- Northern Research Station
- Pacific Northwest Research Station
- Pacific Southwest Research Station — California

- Rocky Mountain Research Station
- Rocky Mountain Research Station — Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute

One of the many challenges Tribes express about responding to climate change is determining the appropriate model(s) and information to use for climate planning. The following document, Climate Projections FAQ, gives answers to some common questions related to climate projections.
