Special issue: "Assessing the Impacts of Climate
Change on Natural Resource Systems," K.D. Frederick

These papers culminate a project designed to encourage and
facilitate future integrated assessments of the social, economic
and environmental impacts of climate change on terrestrial and
freshwater ecosystems. The second paper includes a primer on the
current understanding of the science underlying climate change;
the last summarizes needs for improved climate impact assessments
for policy development.
