Summary

We propose a regional assessment of aquatic species vulnerabilities and responses to climate change as the basis for adaptive management for aquatic ecosystems in the Great Northern LCC, using the Transboundary Flathead Ecosystem as a case example. This region encompasses a complex mix of federal, state, tribal, and private lands in the US and federal, provincial and private lands in Canada. The complex suite of ownerships, international relations, and agency objectives establish their own set of challenges; however, all will experience a similar range of climatic (e.g., long-term drought and declining snow pack) and non-climatic (e.g., habitat fragmentation, shifting land- and water use patterns, and invasive species) changes requiring [...]
