Below is a select list of upcoming and recorded webinars. Click here for a full list of NW CSC products (journal articles, featured research, webinars).
State/Transition Simulation Models for Ecosystem Management
Megan Creutzburg, a research ecologist with the Institute for Natural Resources at Oregon State University, discusses results from a NW CSC- funded study that explored the potential effects of climate change and land management on rangeland condition and sage-grouse habitat in Southeast Oregon. This webinar also features two researchers who, like Creutzburg, incorporated state-and-transition simulation models to address climate change and management issues. They discuss whitebark pine in the greater Yellowstone ecosystem and the longleaf pine ecosystem in the southeastern US.
Mapping Northwest Riparian Areas for Conservation Prioritization
Conserving habitat connectivity is a critical climate adaptation strategy- many species will require well-connected landscapes to complete climate-induced range shifts. Meade Krosby discusses her work to map riparian areas, their condition, and their climate adaptation potential.
Climate Change and Community Health
Jamie Donatuto of the Swinomish Tribe discusses her work with the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation and the USGS to develop Indigenous Community Health Indicators that help identify climate adaptation priorities for coastal communities.
Climate Change, Mountain Pine Beetles, and Whitebark Pine Forests of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem
Polly Buotte discusses models of future probability of whitebark pine mortality under the latest climate change scenarios.
Climate Impacts on Sagebrush
NW CSC-funded scientist Matt Germino discusses the likely impacts of climate and wildfire on sagebrush.
Summary of Integrated Scenarios for the Future Northwest
NW CSC University Director, Phil Mote, provides an overview of results from the Integrated Scenarios of the Future Northwest project given during the April 17th 2014 workshop for managers in Portland, Oregon.
USFWS Safeguarding Wildlife from Climate Change Web Conference Series
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Wildlife Federation developed a series of web conferences to increase communication and transfer of technical information among conservation professionals about adapting wildlife conservation to climate change. This program is being facilitated by the USFWS's National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) Applied Landscape Conservation Team.
