    About This Project

    California climate models predict future high temperatures that reduce fog and threaten redwoods in hotter, drier parts of their range. Most tree models for climate change rely on models that focus on rainfall. Since redwoods use fog for water, rainfall-based models don't work for them.

    To predict redwood population futures, we are creating a model that calculates redwood seedling stress tolerance, using fog and other microclimate factors not included in current models.
