Learn more about the science behind our Species of Conservation Concern project

In a new science brief, learn more about our work to identify species and habitats of priority for State conservation. Currently the project team is conducting interviews with state fish and wildlife chiefs to ascertain which species or habitats would benefit from science related to future conditions. Among the expected outcomes will be a working group or groups to conduct the needed science.

Landscape Sensitivity to Ecological Drought Factsheet

The Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) Ecological Drought Working Group put together a resource for scientists and managers that addresses the question, "How does incorporating climate change and ecological impacts into drought preparedness planning improve longer term outcomes for people and nature?" The ecological drought approach is important because it goes beyond typical drought definitions to take into consideration ecosystems and the services they provide to human communities. Learn more in the attached factsheet! 

NC CSC Contribution to Disaster and Climate Change Response Book

The NC CSC has collaborated on a project called Rising Voices - the former NC CSC director Jeff Morisette and others affiliated with the center built on that experience to write a chapter for the book "Responses to Disasters and Climate Change" called, "The Story of Rising Voices: Facilitating Collaboration between Indigenous and Western Ways of Knowing."

Climate Space of Fire Regimes in North-West North America

This publication, co-authored by Dr. Geneva Chong of the North Central Climate Science Center,  looks at the distribution of fire regime attributes across broad-scale climate and human-influence gradients. The authors used a multivariate climate space framework that allows for analysis and conservation planning focused on incorporating complex drivers of change within the US and across international borders.
