Shifting diversity patterns and species turnover are fundamental concerns about how climate change will influence desert ecosystems. Scientists, managers, and-policy makers are searching for metrics to assist in the prediction of ecosystem responses to climate change. Temporal variation in landscape and regional-scale diversity can provide insights on the fragility or resilience of plant and animal communities in the Southwest to changing climates.

This presentation tackles the various metrics and tools for monitoring the changes in the ecosystem through biodiversity; this in response to the threats of climate change. Presented in this webinar are risk management tools that can be used to develop a sustainable forest and manage the ecosystem against climate change.


Learning Objectives:




1. Participants will learn what the shifting patterns of biodiversity patterns and species turnover are.

2. Participants will understand how landscape level resilience metrics are estimated.

3. Participants will learn how fragmented patches effect the biodiversity resilience.

4. Know the various risk management tool and how to use them in developing sustainable forests.
