Proposal Title: 

How do we monitor the ecological consequences of climate change? Developing an Environmental Change Network in the California LCC

Project Summary: 

This project will develop a foundation for monitoring environmental change by identifying where and what to monitor in order to evaluate climate-change impacts. Initial focus was on landbirds, however a framework will be developed that recommends standardized monitoring for other taxa and environmental attributes. Ultimately, this project will answer the question "How do we monitor the ecological consequences of climate change?"
