Summary

Alaska and Canada’s hundreds of millions of acres of public protected lands are large and currently well-connected, but will face pressures. Providing for landscape connectivity is a core climate adaptation strategy. But shifting treelines, species compositions, and climates make planning for future corridors difficult.Dr. Dawn Magness from the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge uses a method that relies on enduring feature of the landscape that climate change will not change.The project is a collaboration between the NWB LCC and the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge.The geodiversity approach uses topography to define landscape features. Topography can be a proxy for ecological function. For example, topography influences the solar radiation [...]

Purpose

Model landscape connectivity through the most efficient, but permeable paths for moving between the contiguous areas of each geodiversity type were identified by modelling the path of least resistance.
