Webinar: Characterization of montane ecosystems, their microclimates, and wildlife distribution and abundance across the hydrographic Great Basin

Although mountains comprise the majority of the Great Basin, their climate and wildlife are under-studied. Our team took advantage of historical (1898-1956) surveys, 21 years of more-systematic and more-comprehensive recent surveys, and a diversity of technological and modeling advances to help tackle numerous questions at the interface of how Great Basin systems work ('basic science') and how Basin resources may be managed and conserved, amidst contemporary climate change and other influences ('applied science'). Erik Beever, USGS, presents.
