Maintaining habitat connectivity under scenarios of climate and landuse change

ApexRMS is collaborating with the Quebec Government and Andrew Gonzalez from McGill University to assess forest habitat connectivity within the St. Lawrence Lowlands under scenarios of climate and landuse change. We recently published a report and webinar identifying connectivity conservation priorities based on current land use and land cover. Work is now underway to combine climate projections with land use and land cover projections (using ST-Sim) for the St. Lawrence Lowlands so that we can identify priority areas to protect that have a higher probability of maintaining habitat connectivity into the future.
