Please join us on Thursday, September 20 at 3 pm ET for the next presentation in the 2018 National Climate Adaptation Science Center Fish & Game web
inar series: Connectivity for Climate Change: Assessing Threats and Identifying Conservation Actions.
North Carolina State University
Modeling habitat connectivity for wildlife species often results in a mapped network of linkages between habitat patches. A critical next step is to determine which of those linkages are priorities for conservation under climate change, and which conservation actions should be taken on those linkages. This webinar will present a framework for identifying priority conservation actions for linkages based on information on their degree of climate change threat, their importance to the overall habitat network, and projected threats from other stressors. Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center researchers applied this framework to the connectivity networks of three species in the Southeastern U.S.: Rafinesque’s big-eared bat, black bear, and timber rattlesnake.
