Thorpe Wolfe Campbell-2001-An ecoregion approach for evaluating land use management and climate change adaptation strategies on sand dune areas in the Prairie Provinces

Outputs from multiple global circulation models (GCMs) simulate that, with the exception of the
arctic, the prairies will experience the greatest increases in temperature in Canada under continued
increases in greenhouse gases, resulting in widespread impacts and the need for adaptation. This
report focuses on climate change and land use management in sand dune areas located throughout
the Prairie Provinces. Particular attention is given to these areas due to the sensitivity of dunes and
their land uses to climatic variability and change.
