Northern Research Station
July Feature - Climate Science
The only thing constant is change, and climate change is change on a global scale. The Northern Research Station’s July web features include a scientist who has dedicated his career to studying impacts of climate change on tree species habitats, the research underpinning the newest edition of the Climate Change Tree Atlas, and a partnership providing wildlife managers with a tool to inform decision making for wildlife and habitat management in the face of climate change.
Rooted in Research
For 20 years, the Climate Change Tree Atlas has given foresters insight into tree species trends and how possible future climate scenarios may affect eastern tree species' habitat suitability. The Climate Change Tree Atlas recently underwent a major overhaul. Now even more resources are available to land managers looking for detailed data sets and maps on species traits, habitat quality, land cover, and dispersal potential for most tree species in the eastern United States
New Podcast Episode: Mac Callaham, a research ecologist, goes searching in Georgia’s Chattahoochee National Forest for one of Brood X’s most-southern cicada emergences.
