Adaptation to Climate Change

Rising temperatures and shifting precipitation patterns are changing the landscape in profound ways.  Sea level rise, shifting species migration patterns, increases in the spread of invasive species, fluctuating freshwater supplies and the loss of biodiversity will challenge us in new ways.  The variability in biological and ecological processes now being caused by climate change requires an approach firmly grounded in science, with an emphasis toward adaptability.

For more than 30 years Biohabitats has been working with dynamic, living systems.  You can trust us to provide the most current research on mitigating the effects of climate change while sharing our applied knowledge of conservation, restoration and regenerative design initiatives.

Whether you need us to model the effects of precipitation change on a river system, plan an integrated rainwater capture—natural wastewater treatment system to conserve freshwater, design a living shoreline to enhance coastal resilience, or restore critical habitat for an endangered species, our work can help you build landscape and community resilience.
