The theme of ESA 2018 is Extreme Events, Ecosystem Resilience and Human Well-Being.
Extreme events, such as heat waves, droughts, floods, fires and storms, are exacerbated by human activities and challenge populations, communities and ecosystems, as well as our human health and living conditions. The ability of ecosystems to respond to these challenges depends on the integrity of resilience mechanisms that have been severely undermined by land-use practices that increase effects of extreme conditions.
Battelle teams collaborate across disciplines to apply a “climate lens” to understand risks, vulnerabilities and impacts across sectors, and devise and monitor solutions for government and private clients. Our research can be used to help inform conservation and policy-making activities, and provide insights for natural resource management.
