  • Mapping Tech Key to Data Apps That Bust Silos
    Effective HCPs rely on high quality conservation science and rapidly evolving mapping technologies. Advances in both fields have reached a point of potentially tranforming how HCPs are developed and implemented at any spatial extent. Government, academia, and conservation NGOs have led the way in creating and maintaining the most relevant spatial data and information needed for HCPs, but traditional social ...
  • Disturbance and climate microrefugia mediate tree range shifts during climate change
    Context Many tree species will shift their distribution as the climate continues to change. To assess species’ range changes, modeling efforts often rely on climatic predictors, sometimes incorporating biotic interactions (e.g. competition or facilitation), but without integrating topographic complexity or the dynamics of disturbance and forest succession. Objectives We investigated the role of ‘safe islands’ of establishment (‘‘microrefugia’’) in ...
  • Climate change effects on southern California deserts
    Climate change has already affected southern California where regional increases in temperature and vegetation shifts have been observed. While all the CMIP5 temperature projections agree on a substantial level of warming throughout the year, there is fair bit of divergence in the magnitude and seasonality of projected changes in rainfall. While desert plants and animals are generally adapted to extreme ...
  • Rewilding
    This book chapter was written by CBI's Board Chairman, David Johns. Rewilding is a type of large-scale biological and ecological restoration that emphasizes recovery of wide-ranging native species, top carnivores, and other keystone animals in their natural patterns of abundance to regain functional and resilient ecosystems (Noss,1992;Noss and Cooperrider, 1994). The term was coined by Dave Foreman ...
  • Global change and terrestrial plant community dynamics
    Anthropogenic drivers of global change include rising atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses and resulting changes in the climate, as well as nitrogen deposition, biotic invasions, altered disturbance regimes, and land-use change. Predicting the effects of global change on terrestrial plant communities is crucial because of the ecosystem services vegetation provides, from climate regulation to forest products ...
