Resilient Landscapes for Conservation in a Changing Climate
Authors: Melissa Clark
Conservationists need to conserve biological diversity while allowing species and communities to rearrange in response to a changing climate. We developed terrestrial and freshwater approaches for NE North America using features correlated with diversity and resilience. Geospatial analysis included raster modeling and vector network analysis to assess connectivity, microclimates, and ecological settings. Results reveal highly resilient places for future conservation across ecological settings.
