Forest Impacts of Climate Change: Monitoring Indicators

Distribution of Vulnerable Fauna

Vulnerable plant populations often respond to climate change, ecological degradation and other ecological stressors more rapidly and more severely than other organisms in a community. As such, monitoring the distribution and health of vulnerable plant populations can provide valuable insight into the regions, natural communities and species that are being the most directly impacted by climate change.

Protocols for Monitoring Distribution of Vulnerable Fauna

Vermont Small Mammal Atlas is the protocol used for monitoring

Key Metrics for Monitoring Distribution of Vulnerable Fauna

The impacts of climate indicators can be measured using different ecological metrics of quantification. The metrics used in a study can affect how it is designed and the questions that it can answer. The information below shows the types of metrics and number of associated protocols that are captured by the data represented in this project.
