How Will Climate Change Impact Forest Wildlife?

Description

The forests of the NE CASC region are highly exposed to climate change. Likewise, many of the species that inhabit these forest ecosystems are at their southern range edges here and considered sensitive to climate change. Finally, local species’ adaptive capacity is limited by habitat fragmentation, high rates of invasive species, and other stressors. This presentation will review some of the latest research on mammal, bird, and other species' responses to climate change, and projections for future impacts. It will also showcase coproduced research results that indicate climate change refugia, areas buffered from climate change that can be conserved to enable persistence of species in the face of changing climate.
