  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Transcending Boundaries: Reflecting on twenty years of action and research at ATREE
    This book chapter titled "Tryst with Lantana camara" is included in the book Transcending Boundaries:  Reflecting on twenty years of action and research at ATREE" and was co-written by CBI's Chief Project Officer Dr. Gladwin Joseph. Dr. Joseph also serves as an adjunct senior fellow at ATREE (Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment), an India based ...
  • Human Footprint Affects US Carbon Balance More Than Climate Change
    The MC2 model projects an overall increase in carbon capture in conterminous United States during the 21st century while also simulating a rise in fire causing much carbon loss. Carbon sequestration in soils is critical to prevent carbon losses from future disturbances, and we show that natural ecosystems store more carbon belowground than managed systems do. Natural and human-caused disturbances ...
