Dr. Abby Frazier, Research Geographer, has recently joined the DOI Pacific Islands Climate Science Center and the USDA Institute of Pacific Islands Forestry as post-doctoral lead of a new effort to understand the future of drought in the Pacific Islands.
Researchers with the Pacific Islands Climate Science Center have published a new dataset showing predicted changes in climate and the risk of malaria transmission to forest birds during the last years of the 21st century.
Overly specific requirements in conservation policies may be unintentionally wasting management resources and doing more harm than good for the species and landscapes they seek to protect, according to a new opinion paper.
Changes in temperature and precipitation are putting the Northeast and Midwest at risk of more frequent, short-term droughts. In May, researchers with the Northeast CSC met to discuss what this will mean for the region's people and ecosystems.
New research from North Carolina State University finds that urban warming reduces growth and photosynthesis in city trees. The researchers found that insect pests are part of the problem, but that heat itself plays a more significant role.
Droughts are one of the costliest natural disasters and globally affect a large number of people and their livelihoods every year. A new NASA satellite shows the promise of using the satellite’s soil moisture data for drought monitoring.
