Predicting effects of changes in climatic conditions on the distribution of species remains highly challenging. Climate change is predicted to increase both mean temperature and variability in temperature, and it is critical to have a strong mechanistic understanding of how organisms are likely to respond to future thermal environments. The Climate Variability Hypothesis (Janzen 1967) relates seasonal thermal variability to species’ distributions, thermal niches, dispersal ability and population genetic structure.

Global freshwater resources are under increasing threat from human activities, both in terms of consumptive and non-consumptive use. Increasing societal demands for water have led to substantial flow alterations in rivers, both in Canada and internationally. Environmental flows describes the quantity, quality, and timing of water flows required to sustain freshwater ecosystems and human livelihoods and well-being dependent upon these ecosystems (Brisbane Declaration, 2007).
Battelle and its affiliate, Battelle Ecology, Inc. manages and operates the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) project, which is solely funded by the National Science Foundation. A 30+ year project dedicated to understanding how changes in climate, land use and invasive species impact ecology.
