Determining effects of microclimate on individual survival in the American pika

Poster Number:  15 Presenter/Primary Author:  Chris Ray With the rise of environmental niche modeling, it has become popular to project how climate change will alter the distribution of a species.

Seasonal effects of microhabitat structure on sub-surface microclimates in blocky debris

Poster Number:  13 Presenter/Primary Author:  Chris Ray Rock glaciers and other forms of blocky debris underlain by permafrost or seasonal ice often serve as habitat for iconic montane species such as marmots, pikas and pine martens, as well as many sma
