How Will Climate Change Impact Forest Wildlife webinar

October 13, 2021 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Northeast Climate Adaption Science Center

The Northeast Climate Adaption Science Center at UMass will hold a How Will Climate Change Impact Forest Wildlife webinar on Wednesday, October 13th at 4 pm

The forests of the northeast are highly exposed to climate change, and many of the species that inhabit our forest ecosystems are at their southern range edges here and considered sensitive to climate change. Species’ adaptive capacity is limited by habitat fragmentation, high rates of invasive species, and other stressors.

In this webinar, Toni Lyn Morelli of the U.S. Geological Survey will review some of the latest research on mammal, bird, and other species’ responses to climate change, and projections for future impacts.

She 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.
