Assessing the vulnerability of rare plants using climate change velocity, habitat connectivity and dispersal abilityDownload
Climate change generally requires species to migrate northward or to higher elevation to maintain constant climate conditions, but migration requirement and migration capacity of individual species can vary greatly. Individual populations of species occupy different positions in the landscape...
A changing climate is the largest threat to forest productivity in western Canada and to the ability of forested landscapes to provide ecological and economic services, both now and in the future. As climate changes, locally adapted tree populations become mismatched with local conditions,...
Cultivating Place, Livelihood, and the Future: An Ethnography of Dwelling and Climate in Western GreenlandDownload
In order to investigate how Inuit Greenlanders in western Greenland are experiencing, responding to, and thinking about recent allegedly human-induced climate change, this dissertation ethnographically examines the lives of Greenlanders as well as Norse and Danes in the course of past historical...
Bioclimate envelope models are widely used to project potential species habitat under changing climate. Conceptually, these models are also well suited to match natural resource management practices to new climatic realities, for example by guiding species choice in reforestation programs....
Given high levels of human disturbance and projected rates of climate change, many species will be unable to keep pace with their shifting climatic ranges and thus face increased risk of extinction. This research investigated the use of assisted migrations for two rare and range-restricted plant...
As climates warm and extreme climatic events occur with more frequency and severity, maintaining forest health and productivity may involve planting seed sources from warmer, drier areas. To guide such reforestation strategies, this work analyzes the risks of both climate change and assisted...
