In keeping with the research goals of the U.S. Climate Change Science Program, the Research and Development agenda of the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), helps define climate change policy and develop best management practices for forests (both rural and urban) and grasslands. These actions are taken to sustain ecosystem health, adjust management for ecosystem services ("adaptation"), and increase carbon sequestration ("mitigation"), all under changing climate conditions. The fundamental research focus of the Forest Service Global Change Research Strategy is to increase understanding of forest, woodland, and grassland ecosystems so that they can be managed in a way that sustains and provides ecosystem services for future generations.

Keywords: climate change, ecosystem health, ecosystem services, increase carbon sequestration
