Web Applications
  • Climate Adapted Seed Tool – Rapid climate change has caused a mismatch between the climate that tree populations have adapted to and the climate they currently grow in. This tool helps ecosystem managers identify seed sources that are pre-adapted to local climate conditions at their planting sites.
  • Postfire Spatial Conifer Restoration Planning Tool – Large and severe wildfires are leaving vast areas devoid of natural conifer regeneration. This tool aids managers in prioratizing areas for restoration by providing maps of predicted postfire conifer regeneration. It includes taxon-specific regeneration predictions and a range of postfire climate and seed production scenarios.
  • Seed Zone Climate Tracker – I built this app as an initial step toward developing revised seed transfer guidelines for California. It differs from the Climate Adapted Seed Tool in that it allows the user to select which climate variables to track and does not integrate data from seed-transfer experiments.
  • Pika Extirpation Predicter – This is an interactive supplement to our paper on pika extirpations in California. Adjust the slider to see where American pika populations are predicted to become extinct as temperatures warm.
