The paper describes a general ecological risk assessment model as well as specific conceptual models for current EPA research projects which are generating data relevant to future global climate change risk assessments. These projects on the irrigated rice agroecosystem and Douglas fir forest ecosystem include experimental research on effects of CO2 and temperature on key components of the ecosystems. The experimental results are designed to support plant and ecosystem modeling in a geographic information system context which will ultimately be used to interpret the risks to those systems on a landscape (regional) scale.
