    Abstract

    In this project, we examined the views of 21 long-term employees onclimate change in 14 Rocky Mountain Research Station ExperimentalForests and Ranges (EFRs). EFRs were described by employees asuniquely positioned to advance knowledge of climate change impacts andadaptation strategies due to the research integrity they provide for longterm studies, the ability to host experimental treatments on the efficacy ofadaptation actions, and the opportunity for long-term field observations toinform and improve research. Institutional commitment and capacity wasidentified by participants as critical to realizing the potential of EFRs tocontribute to climate change research.
