Winter severity is a key regulator of wildlife in the Great Lakes region. Learn how the Northeast CSC modeled how winter severity in the region might change as temperatures rise, and what these changes mean for wildlife.
Lack of connected habitats in the face of warming temperatures and urbanization is one of the biggest threats facing wildlife. Learn how the Southeast CSC is mapping landscape connections in the region and examining how these connections might change.
In the Southwest, the pronghorn - North America's fastest land mammal - is in decline. Learn about research from NCCWSC focused on understanding the causes of this decline and identifying what the future holds for this iconic species.
To help maintain, strengthen, and increase connectivity between landscapes for conserving wildlife, scientists across the country are actively working to ensure that managers and planners have sound scientific research upon which to base their decisions.
A new paper led by U.S. Geological Survey Ecologists Erik Beever and Michelle Staudinger addresses the importance of including adaptive capacity of species as a fundamental component when assessing vulnerability to rapid climate change.
From forest to grassland, desert to ocean, many wildlife species are already “feeling the heat” from climate change. Here are eight animals that provide a glimpse into how climate change is impacting wildlife across the country.
