Speaker(s): Joel Smith,
Title: Understanding climate change impacts on huckleberries
Abstract: Huckleberries (Vaccinium membranaceum) form 15% of the food for grizzly bears in Glacier National Park and are important to many northwestern tribes. I will discuss the work I did last summer for Dr. Graves as part of the SISNAR program. I collected data to evaluate climate change impacts on huckleberries. I will also discuss approaches to extend data collection to the Flathead Indian Reservation as part of a senior research project as part of the wildlife management program at Salish Kootenai College.
