Climate Change and Ecosystems

This Sackler Forum examined the latest science on how climate change can affect terrestrial, aquatic, and marine ecosystems, in particular addressing current research frontiers such as effects of changes in climate variability and extremes; interactions among multiple stressors; thresholds and the potential for abrupt change; and multi-trophic interactions. A key output was identification of priority avenues for scientific research and policy advice and implementation.


The Raymond and Beverly Sackler U.S.-U.K. Scientific Forum was established to help the scientific leadership of the United Kingdom and the United States forge an enduring and productive partnership on pressing topics of worldwide scientific concern with benefit to all people. The program, which was made possible by an endowment gift from the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Foundation, was placed on hiatus in February 2019.
