National Conservation Training Center logo National Wildlife Federation  logo

A partnership between the National Wildlife Federation and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Wildlife Federation have developed a series of web conferences to increase communication and transfer of technical information between conservation professionals regarding the increasing challenges from climate change. This program is being facilitated by the USFWS's National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) Applied
Landscape Conservation Team.


Date: Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Time: 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern Time
Topic: The Causes and Consequences of Hybridization in a Warmer World
Captioning: Closed Captioning will be provided in your registration confirmation email.
Archive: If you are unable to attend this webinar, it will be recorded and posted to the Safeguarding Wildlife Webinar Series Archive approximately 1-2 weeks after the presentation.
Presenter: Dr. Amanda Chunco, Assistant Professor, Department of Environmental Studies, Elon University
Description: Climate change is dramatically altering community composition in habitats across the globe. Species’ ranges are moving, the timing of important life history events is shifting, and many populations are undergoing severe declines and local extinctions. One potential consequence of climate change is a shift in reproductive interactions; hybridization may result when two previously isolated species come into contact as a result of climate change. Here, Dr. Chunco will provide some background about how climate change is affecting the likelihood of hybridization and discuss why this issue is important for wildlife conservation.
Resources: None at this time.
