The ecological/evolutionary community needs new concepts, models, empirical approaches, and statistical tools to project where individual species will move, how ecological communities will disassemble and reassemble, and how those communities will change in structure and function as the climate continues to change. Stronger predictive power will be critical in mitigating the effects of climate change on biodiversity, community dynamics, ecosystem functioning, and species of conservation concern. To this end, this collection of papers proposes state-of-the-art ways forward and provides materials for both established and student ecologists, policy experts, and natural resource managers to pose creative and effective solutions to the environmental and societal problems caused by climate change.
