Montana Wildlife Project

A Framework for guiding management decisions for amphibians

August 2021 - July 2023


Participating Agencies

  • North Central Climate Adaptation Science Center

In this project, we will determine which amphibians in the North Central region of the United States are at the greatest risk from the anticipated effects of climate change, through the use of a climate change vulnerability analysis (CCVA). Our project collaborators will develop a decision framework for weighing tradeoffs among potential management actions and the anticipated effects of those actions. This funding will provide support for a year of graduate student funding for performing the CCVA and predicting which amphibian species in the region are most at risk from climate change.
