Helping Insects Adapt to Climate Change

Climate change adaptation is about helping societies and nature adjust to changing climate. Ecologists need to study example species to reveal key vulnerabilities and design useful strategies for helping biodiversity adjust to climate change. This video describes research in the Hellmann Lab to understand the vulnerabilities of butterflies and their plants to climate change, and a strategy called managed relocation (or assisted migration) that might help species persist through climate change.
