Climate Change Effects on Wetlands and Waterbirds

Project Summary
Project CodeALCC2012-07
Project Lead(s) U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
DescriptionA team of researchers will develop a detailed study plan to evaluate whether and how climate change may alter the availability of key freshwater bird habitats. The study plan will focus on understanding these relationships on wetland areas around Barrow, Alaska, where collaborators have on-going studies investigating surface hydrology, snow cover, and habitat use of nesting shorebirds. The team will examine modeling approaches being conducted in these three disciplines, establish experimental approaches to test predictions about bird and habitat relationships, and explore tools that can be used by managers when trying to understand the potential impact climate change may have on habitats and the associated bird species.
