BACKGROUND: The U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) established the Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center (SE CASC) in 2010 to address the challenges presented by climate and land use change in the Southeastern United States (http://secasc.ncsu.edu/). SE CASC’s mission is to develop and deliver scientific knowledge and tools needed to help fish, wildlife, and ecosystems adapt to a changing climate. SE CASC operates using advice and guidance from a Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC). SE CASC broad scientific priorities and principles of operation are described in a 2018 Memorandum.
