Fish and wildlife play crucial roles across ecosystems and in human society. High animal diversity contributes to healthy ecosystems, and many species provide important economic benefits to our communities.
Winter severity is a key regulator of wildlife in the Great Lakes region. Learn how the Northeast CASC modeled how winter severity in the region might change as temperatures rise, and what these changes mean for wildlife.
Lack of connected habitats in the face of warming temperatures and urbanization is one of the biggest threats facing wildlife. Learn how the Southeast CASC is mapping landscape connections in the region and examining how these connections might change.
In the Southwest, the pronghorn - North America's fastest land mammal - is in decline. Learn about research from NCASC focused on understanding the causes of this decline and identifying what the future holds for this iconic species.
To help maintain, strengthen, and increase connectivity between landscapes for conserving wildlife, scientists across the country are actively working to ensure that managers and planners have sound scientific research upon which to base their decisions.
