  • 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 ...
  • Trends and drivers of fire activity vary across California aridland ecosystems
    Fire activity has increased in western US aridland ecosystems due to increased human-caused ignitions and the expansion of flammable exotic grasses. Because many desert plants are not adapted to fire, increased fire activity may have long-lasting ecological impacts on native vegetation and the wildlife that depend on it. Given the heterogeneity across aridland ecosystems, it is important to understand how ...
  • Different historical fire–climate patterns in California
    The relationship between annual variation in area burned and seasonal temperatures and precipitation was investigated for the major climate divisions in California. Historical analyses showed marked differences in fires on montane and foothill landscapes. Based on roughly a century of data, there are five important lessons on fire–climate relationships in California: (1) seasonal variations in temperature appear to have had ...
  • BLM Sagebrush Managers Give Feedback on Eight Climate Web Applications
    Sagebrush ecosystems have endured fragmentation and degradation from multiple disturbances. Climate change poses an additional threat that can exacerbate current stresses. Web-based climate applications can provide information to help land managers prepare for challenges. To develop useful and usable tools for land managers’ needs, the collaboration of scientist, web tool developer, and user is needed. Climate scientists and web tool ...
