Climate Change and Wetlands

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

Abstract

Projected changes in the climate are expected to increase temperatures, modify precipitation, raise sea levels, and increase extreme climate events with large impacts on wetlands, including their occurrence and extent, vegetation structure, ecological processes and functions, as well as the livelihoods and wellbeing of the people that depend on the wetlands and their ecosystem services. Some changes in wetland species have already been observed with both freshwater and marine species shifting their geographic ranges, seasonal activities, and migration patterns. At the same time it has been recognized that some wetlands store and emit greenhouse gases with their degradation and destruction contributing to greater releases of such gases and negative implications for atmospheric temperatures.
