Using the American pika as a model, scientists illustrate the ways by which climate change affects wildlife in some of the most protected, but least understood ecosystems in the western United States.
- American pika (Ochotona princeps) modeling illustrates how climate change affects wildlife and habitat
- Wildlife and microclimate data collected for 9 years
- 13 federal and state agencies and institutions participated
- 72-90% of the most protected areas are in the western U.S., and are the least understood
