USGS biologist Sean Murphy presented preliminary results at The Oregon Chapter of The Wildlife Society meeting in Bend, Oregon, on February 5–7. Murphy’s talk, titled “Predicting and managing climate change impacts on semiarid land, wetlands, shorebirds, and their prey,” described an effort by USGS and other collaborators to model climate change effects on shorebirds using remote sensing, legacy data, and ground-level monitoring.
