Species' Range Shifts at Sequoia-Kings Canyon NP

Description

As climate change creates new temperature and precipitation patterns, the ranges that some species occupy are changing. Scientists have been re-surveying birds and mammals at sites in California that were first surveyed nearly 100 years ago. The results show how species' ranges have shifted in association with climate change. At the same time, park staff are working to apply the science to park management and to engage the public in understanding what change means for future biodiversity in the park.
