  • Climate change alters the biophysical and socioeconomic context for ecological restoration efforts in ways with and without precedence. New and changing conditions affect restoration project costs and expected benefits, including shifts in the overall goals and extent of society’s demand for restoration. Climate change increases restoration project costs as temperature and precipitation patterns increase the expected frequency and severity of water shortages, while scarce ecosystem services can increase the demand for restoration projects. Increasing uncertainty and ignorance regarding future water availability heightens these concerns. As a case study example, I explain and quantify the potential impacts on the ecosystem structures and functions of dam-building beaver populations. I estimate the value of potential economic benefits of beaver restoration in the context of climate impacts on water availability for example watersheds in the Southwest and Northwest.
