A new paper led by U.S. Geological Survey Ecologists Erik Beever (Research Ecologist, Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center) and Michelle Staudinger (Science Coordinator, Northeast Climate Science Center) addresses the importance of including adaptive capacity of species as a fundamental component when assessing vulnerability to rapid climate change.
The Department of the Interior Northeast Climate Science Center (NE CSC) has released a report today synthesizing the latest information on the vulnerability of species and ecosystems to climate change in a 22-state region in the Northeast and Midwest U.S.
Jack pine forests are critical in the upper Great Lakes region and regeneration of these forests is challenging due to drought and other stressors. John Almendinger, MN DNR, is grateful for NE CSC Fellow Kyle Gill's research on jack pine forest dynam
Learn about a new Northeast Climate Science Center project, Climate Assessments and Scenario Planning, led by Postdoctoral Fellow, Alex Bryan. Alex provides guidance to NE CSC stakeholders to help them better anticipate and prepare for future climate.
New research shows that Lake Erie's dead zones are actually quite active, greatly affecting fish distributions, catch rates and the effectiveness of fishing gear.
NE CSC affiliated scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have developed a tool that allows communities to identify vulnerability to high runoff flows and flooding from extreme rainfall events, before damage occurs.
Dilemmas are tackled by the Northeast Climate Science Center (NE CSC), a federal-academic partnership that provides scientific information, tools and techniques that natural resource managers can use to anticipate, monitor and adapt to climate change.
Featuring research activities and accomplishments for a variety of events and projects held over the last year.
Graduate Fellow with the NE CSC, Paul Damkot studies how brook trout are affected by and adapt to climate change.
What happens to the value of coastal habitat and wildlife as shorelines continue to be lost to rising sea levels and increasingly frequent extreme weather events? This question is particularly important for coastal National Wildlife Refuge managers.
On Thursday, March 12, 2015 at 11am EST (10am CST), researchers will present updates on the development of tools used to project the impact of climate change on deer and waterfowl populations.
Researchers recently completed a project where they compared maps and classification systems from various producers to identify opportunities for consolidating the strongest qualities in each mapping system.
