Summary

The goal of this project is to identify climate-related scientific information needs in the North Central region that will support the management of key species and help avoid species declines. Researchers will work closely with state fish and wildlife agencies, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, tribes, and other relevant natural resource management and conservation agencies to identify priority information needs and to design and implement studies that will address these needs. Researchers will identify stakeholders, including those engaged by the North Central Climate Science Center USGS Liaisons project. Researchers will then work with stakeholders to identify priority conservation targets. Selected targets will be those that [...]

Purpose

The primary objective of this project is to support state and other efforts to avoid species declines by providing climate-related scientific information about high priority species or their habitat. We will achieve this by helping the North Central Climate Science Center consult with state fish and wildlife agencies, US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) departments, and other relevant natural resource management agencies to: (1) identify regional priorities for information needed to support decision making, and (2) work with managers to design and implement scientific or other studies needed to inform such decisions.
