Title of Talk: Plant migration and urban habitat landscapes in a changing climate

View the recorded video here

As climate change shifts the regional distribution of our native plants, habitat connectivity will be a critical factor in the success of their migration and adaptation. This research and landscape planning project explores how changes to the spatial structure of urban landscapes could significantly improve the connectivity of urban plant habitat. By relating climate trends at the state scale to the movement of propagules between patches, we can understand how local planning and management actions can impact biodiversity at larger scales.
