The historical record of environmental change provides guidelines for environmental policy and management in several ways: It provides empirical evidence for the potential pace, pattern, and mechanism of environmental change; it provides validation data to test theory of environmental change; and it provides a baseline against which we can measure social and environmental change. However, the novelty of anticipated future environments can challenge these traditional uses of historical data
This session will cover a wide perspective on historical environmental data and consider how historical ecology, paleoecology, paleoclimatology, environmental modeling, and policy planning contribute to inform our understanding of future environmental change.
