This section of the website houses publications, articles, presentations and other resources that are valuable background information about climate change and agriculture in the Pacific Northwest. Some of these materials were designed as primers on key science concepts, while others are overviews of a management practice or environmental concern relevant to the region. Background materials are organized by topic.
Background materials will be added and developed over time. Please let us know on the “Ask a Question” page if there is a topic or issue you’d like to see covered here or if you’d like to recommend an existing reference resource to be included.
