September 5th, 2012|

Increasing temperatures due to climate change can be particularly detrimental to boreal species that rely on extensive snow depth and snow persistence into early spring for breeding. If seasonal winter conditions shorten each year and [...]

Connecting habitat to promote range shifts

September 5th, 2012|

Figure 2 from Hodgson et al (2011) Originally, scientists promoted corridors as a way to increase the persistence of populations isolated in habitat fragments. Researchers are now asking if the corridor strategy is the [...]

Corridors and Climate Change
