Morelli, Colleagues Map Areas Buffered from Climate Change

In a recent paper in Ecosphere, Toni Lyn Morelli, adjunct assistant professor of environmental conservation and a U.S. Geological Survey research ecologist with the Northeast Climate Science Center, and colleagues elsewhere present some of the first maps of climate change refugia – areas buffered from climate change that can be managed for species conservation – focused on mountain meadows in California.

She says of the project funded by the California Landscape Conservation Cooperative, “We’re really excited about this work, which was stakeholder-driven. We think it will be really important to meadow conservation and restoration in the Sierra Nevada.”
