Modeling Avifaunal Responses

Project Summary
Project CodeALCC2011-16
Project Lead(s) University of Alberta
DescriptionUsing a bioclimatic envelope approach, University of Alberta investigators will project how the distribution and abundance of boreal forest birds across North America will respond to different scenarios of future climate-change. Investigation emphasis will be on mapping and quantifying potential range expansions of boreal bird species into Arctic and subarctic regions across Alaska and Canada. The final products will result in a broad continental-scale overview of potential shifts in avian distribution. For more information, visit the Boreal Avian Modelling Project website at
