Interesting study on predicting how climate change impacts biodiversity

I thought I’d share a quick note about how conservation biologists and others are attempting to study how climate change will impact biodiversity and species distribution. This type of research is essential to developing not only scientific approaches to addressing these impacts, but also to inform policy to better plan for and improve conservation and climate efforts.  Specifically, ecologists are developing modeling tools that will hopefully help predict (and mitigate) how climate change will impact species’ ability to adapt to changes. One recent study, highlighted here, utilizes genetic analysis to model and map how certain tree species may react (and move) to climate impacts.
