Moose and Caribou in the Face of Climate Change: Winners or Losers?
A presentation on how future climate change may impact moose populations and the genetic diversity of caribou.
The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP), funded by CPO's Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program, will host a webinar titled "Moose and Caribou in the Face of Climate Change: Winners or Losers?" on Tuesday, May 20 at 10 a.m. AKST (1 p.m. EST).
Climate change will have impacts on animals living in northern environments that go far beyond shifting habitats, and some species may fare better than others. This presentation looks at factors involved in evaluating the impact of future climate change on moose and also presents the results of a recent study that predicts changes in the genetic diversity of caribou relative to changing climate.
