Lecture:
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
