This summary was developed based on the presentations and participant discussions at the 2018 Raymond and Beverly Sackler USA-UK Scientific Forum. It was prepared by Steve Olsson, April Melvin, and Sarah Giles, with assistance from Amanda Staudt and Emma Woods. The document was reviewed in draft form by the planning committee and underwent an external peer review by forum participants Nancy Grimm, Arizona State University, and Val Kapos, United Nations Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre. Ruth DeFries, Columbia University, served as arbiter to oversee that external review comments were appropriately incorporated into the final version of this summary. Support for this activity was provided by the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Foundation.

Members are elected by their peers for outstanding contributions to research.

Image The Royal Society is a self-governing Fellowship of many of the world’s most distinguished scientists. Its members are drawn from all areas of science, engineering, and medicine. It is the national academy of science in the United Kingdom. The Society’s fundamental purpose, reflected in its founding Charters of the 1660s, is to recognize, promote, and support excellence in science and to encourage the development of use of science for the benefit of humanity.

The National Academies convened a forum on November 8-9, 2018 to highlight current research frontiers such as the effects of climate extremes, interactions among climate and other stressors, the timing, sequence, and clustering of climate-related events, and tipping points for abrupt change. Topics of discussion at the forum pertained to the changes ecosystems are currently undergoing, sustaining ecosystems, the impact of ecosystems on global climate change, societal adaptation to climate change, and priorities for future research. This report summarizes the presentations and discussions from the forum.
