Snowshoe hare (Lepus americanus) populations in the Northeast are considered important indicators of long-term forest and ecosystem health. Population metrics can be used to predict future trends in snowshoe hare populations.
There are 4 protocols that are used to monitor the indicator: Snowshoe Hare Population. The first three studies on the list below are the most common methods of monitoring in the Northeast region.
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.
