Join this FEMC webinar Forest Impacts of Climate Change: Exploring a new tool to monitor critical ecosystem indicators as The Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative announces the tool’s release. We’ll share more information about using the tool and results from an initial gap analysis of monitoring in the northeast.
This tool allows users to explore where forest monitoring is occurring of 24 expert-identified climate change indicators in the Northeastern U.S. Users can access protocols and visualize where monitoring studies are already being conducted with a focus on aquatic systems, forest systems, trees, and wildlife. Landowners, managers, and researchers can then use these protocols to implement their own, comparable monitoring programs that will be added to the database that already consists of 350 studies with 168 replicable protocols. Developing this network of monitoring sites provides critical information to help close spatial gaps in monitoring efforts and provides baseline data for further inquiry into how forest systems are shifting in response to climate change.
