Summary

The forests of the Northeastern United States are home to some of the greatest diversity of nesting songbirds in the country. Climate change, shifts in natural disturbance regimes, and invasive species pose threats to forest habitats and bird species in the northeastern United States and represent major challenges to natural resource managers. Although broad adaptation approaches have been suggested for sustaining forested habitats under global change, it is unclear how effective the implementation of these strategies at local and regional scales will be for maintaining habitat conditions for a broad suite of forest-dependent bird species over time. Moreover, given the diversity in forest stakeholders across the Northeast region, [...]

typeTechnical Summary
valueThis project will identify the adaptation science needs of federal, state, and tribal stakeholders for forest habitats and will apply landscape simulation models to determine the effectiveness of existing and proposed adaptation strategies at sustaining forest-dependent bird species across the region. This project leverages existing stakeholder partnerships, including with the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS) and Upper Midwest and Great Lakes LCC, to characterize key research gaps related to forest adaptation science and inform co-development of future research agendas for the Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center (NECASC) and other partners
