U.S. federal agencies are increasingly requesting information about ecosystem services to assist in long-range planning and resource management. In this talk, I will discuss recent efforts to develop rigorous and timely ecosystem services information for agencies including the Bureau of Land Management, Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, and USDA Forest Service.

Climate change is stated as being likely to cause the forced movement of millions of people, especially from small island communities. In fact, in climate-induced migration discussions, islands are a populist icon, with the discourse tending to be that the blameless residents from those communities must flee the rising seas. Such statements are not always placed in wider and deeper understandings of mobility and non-mobility. Focusing on island communities, this presentation examines and critiques island evacuation as climate change adaptation, especially in comparison to wider environment and migration contexts. Without denying the major challenges which climate change has previously brought to some islanders and brings to many islanders today, climate change is often overplayed--but that does not diminish the relevance of island experiences for our own climate change related decisions.
