Northern Research Station: Sustainable Management of Central Hardwood Ecosystems and Landscapes

Our broader climate change activities and perspectives: 

Using population viability, habitat suitability, and landscape simulation models in an integrated analysis for conservation planning is an important advancement because habitat quality is a critical link between human land use decisions and wildlife population viability. The approach demonstrated here will allow land managers and planners to more effectively incorporate habitat and viability issues into land-use and management decisions at large scales.
