10.1 Introduction Freshwaters and freshwater biota are highly vulnerable to
climate change (IPCC 2013). ... A substantial body of research demonstrates the
sensitivity of freshwater ecosystems to climate forcing and shows that physical,
chemical, and biological lake properties respond rapidly to changes in this
forcing (Rosenzweig 2007; Adrian et al. ... For instance climate-driven
fluctuations in lake level have been observed on a regional-scale across North
America (Williamson et al.

If the atmosphere-freshwater- ocean regime is stable for a particular time, it is
possible to estimate the age-specific mortality rates for a species of interest.
However, at least some parts of the atmosphere-freshwater- ocean system are
prone to oscillations on a decadal scale, which may not be cyclical. These natural
changes occur globally; thus, they will have impacts on the freshwater and
marine ecosystems that support North American fish populations. Under natural
conditions, it may ...

However, recent recognition of the potential ecological impacts of global climate
change resulting from human activities[387] has led to a huge number of relevant
publications[266]. Indeed, significant ecological impacts of anthropogenic climate
change have been forecasted for most of the world's ecosystems[176]. For
aquatic ecosystems, climate-induced changes in broadscale weather patterns (
e.g., North Atlantic Oscillation [NAO], Pacific Decadal Oscillation [PDO]) may alter
