Summary

Climate change, the spread of invasive species, and shifts in natural disturbance regimes such as wildfires and drought represent major challenges facing forest managers in the Adirondack region of New York, and across the northeastern US. Managers require a suite of potential adaptive management options that could be implemented depending on how conditions change. Although general adaptation strategies have been suggested for sustaining forests, it is unclear how effective these strategies would be for maintaining forests – and the wildlife that depend on forests – at local or regional levels. In addition, these strategies have not been developed into explicit decision-support tools that could guide regional conservation planning. [...]

Purpose

Climate change, shifts in natural disturbance regimes, and invasive species represent major challenges facing natural resource managers and policy makers tasked with sustaining forested habitats in the northeastern United States, including the Adirondack Region of New York. This project will evaluate the long-term potential impacts of changing climate, disturbance, and management regimes on the forests across the Adirondack Region so as to inform adaptation strategies for minimizing impacts on forest productivity, structure, and associated priority bird species.
