Northeastern boreal forests are an important habitat for many wildlife species, including migratory birds and moose. These animals play vital roles in the boreal forest ecosystem, are a source of pleasure for bird and wildlife watchers, and contribute to tourism revenue for many communities.

For example, in New York’s Adirondack State Park, six species of boreal birds have shown population declines over the past ten years. Meanwhile, moose in many parts of the northeast are threatened by winter ticks that thrive in warmer climates and spread disease. Building upon earlier work related to climate impacts on moose populations [...]
