Each year, WCS scientists author or co-author nearly 300 peer-reviewed studies and papers. “WCS 3 Sentence Science” is a regular tip-sheet – in bite sized helpings – of some of this published work.
team of researchers identified priorities for securing potential sites
where wildlife can take refuge as areas of habitat become climatically
2. They developed and compared two planning scenarios: one that that permits both the retention of high quality habitat and the restoration of land used for forestry and agriculture; and a scenario that favors the retention of high quality habitat above land restoration efforts.
3. The results of the study provide immediate guidance for on-ground management actions, and provides a robust methodology that can support climate change adaptation decisions in multi-use landscapes around the world.
