Abstract/Contents:"Global climate change is effecting the distribution of plant species globally. Mean annual temperatures are increasing throughout the West, particularly at higher elevations, and this increase is set to continue. CO2 is also increasing, and remained above 400 ppm for the first time in 2016. Annual precipitation shows less of a long-term pattern, with ocean-atmospheric oscillations (e.g. La Nina/El Nino, Pacific Decadal Oscillation) causing shorter-term variability. Precipitation is generally predicted to remain the same or become drier, with more variability and changes in the form of the precipitation at higher elevations and latitudes. These climate changes correlate with other changes including increases in fire frequency, land-use etc., all of which alter the distribution of plant species. Many invasive plant species are set to benefit from global change. I will discuss how the distribution of annual grasses is predicted to change in the West, what we know about community response to annual grasses under a changing climate, and how this should influence management practices."
