Adapting the Management of our National Parks for Climate Change

Our National Parks are vulnerable to climate change in a number of ways, requiring changes in the way we manage our parks.  This project uses decision support tools (e.g., scenario planning, vulnerability assessments) and climate science to help park managers adapt their management practices to climate change. Park managers are asking what changes they can expect that uniquely affect their park and to what degree.

Forecasting songbird vulnerabilities to climate change

This project focused on evaluating the spatial relationships of migratory bird movements and how they are mediated by environmental factors, providing resource managers a tool for assessing effects of potential climate change and wind energy development on bird migration. The research has direct relevance to the management of protected areas, and he will work with cooperators to develop and deliver outreach materials and activities as a part of the project.
