May 23, 2013. How much and which landscapes do wildlife in the Crown of the Continent need to persist as Earth's climate warms up? Answering this question has kept Dr. John Weaver busy across the Rockies and beyond for over a decade as Senior Research Scientist for the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS).
The renowned Wildlife Conservation Society released in June a monograph titled, "Conservation Values of Roadless Areas for Vulnerable Fish and Wildlife Species in the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem, Montana" by Dr. John Weaver. The report details the ecological values of roadless land throughout the Crown ecosystem. We note in particular the section on the North Fork Flathead River watershed. The full report can be found here.
