    land use invasives altered fire cycles and the interactions among these factors will affect ecosystems and the services they provide to human communities Focal Questions 1 What future changes in dryland ecosystems including living organisms soil and water are due to climate variability climate change land use such as grazing agriculture energy exploration development recreation invasion fire and the interaction among these factors What species human and natural communities ecosystems and soils in these regions are especially vulnerable to these changes In order to better manage western U S drylands we need to understand what future changes are due to climate change and other relatively uncontrollable factors and what changes are due to management decisions We also need to identify which natural resources human communities and economies water sources and species of concern will be most vulnerable to future changes and how we mitigate these impacts Monitoring and experimental programs are needed that will enable us to ascertain the cause of observed changes and document what aspects of the ecosystems are most vulnerable to change 2 In light of future changes how will the land uses and users need to adapt in order to sustain human economies health and communities ecosystem structure and function soils and species of concern and the resilience of these components to climate variability and change Given future changes in climate we need to understand how we might alter the type timing intensity or spatial distribution of land uses to better ensure sustainable use of natural resources in dryland regions and the survival of sensitive species Research is needed to predict soil and ecosystem responses to alternative management scenarios and to determine how future climate and land uses interact to affect the capacity of land managers to meet their conservation objectives We also require a deeper
