Modeling the Effects of Climate and Land Use Change on Crucial Wildlife Habitat

6.30.2017 (Fri)

Researchers at New Mexico State University, the New Mexico Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, and NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory addressed this need by comparing what is known about the climate needs of 20 key species with future climate projections. The resulting maps and data are in the process of being integrated into the publicly available New Mexico CHAT (Critical Habitat Assessment Tool).
