NPLCC-Funded work Published in Ecological Society of America

Thursday, July 03, 2014

We are pleased to share Dr. Maureen Ryan's recent publication in Ecological Society of America (ESA). This project, partially funded by the NPLCC, looked at the effects of climate change on montane wetland ecosystems in the western US. One of the major findings of the project showcased how amphibians might be affected. Dr. Ryan stated "Amphibians in the West’s high-mountain areas find themselves in a vise, caught between climate-induced habitat loss and predation from introduced fish." This project developed a list of tools that could be of use to land managers working with montane wetlands including a hydrologic model and remote-sensing techniques.
