Summary

Rocky Mountain Research Station scientists initiated a study in the 1990s on avian distribution and habitat associations within the Sky Islands. By re-measuring vegetation and bird populations following wildfires and applying climate change models, they will assess the singular and synergistic effects of climate change and wildfire and provide strategies for managing resilient forests and conserving the avian community structure. They will also continue and expand citizen science efforts to develop a long term avian monitoring plan, as well as simulation studies to provide optimal monitoring designs for avian species to detect changes from large-scale stressors.

Purpose

The purpose of this project is to: 1) Assess impacts of wildfire and climate change on avian communities. 2) Determine if bird distribution patterns and species diversity changed over time and are changes attributable to fire and climate change. 3) Determine impacts of fire severity and time since fire and climate change on vegetation and avian communities. 4) Identify management strategies effective with climate change and fire management to maintain species diversity and mitigate large-scale disturbance on sensitive bird species. 5) Establish a long-term avian monitoring program using citizen scientists. 6) Evaluate how citizen science and outreach activities contribute to research objectives of assessing avian community changes with wildfire and climate change. 7) Develop long-term avian monitoring program using citizen science. 8) Develop cost-efficient protocols for monitoring avian communities. 9) Develop an optimal study design for avian communities in the Sky Islands.
