Scientists at the Rocky Mountain Research Station are helping managers better understand how climate change, wildfire, and forest management interact to drive forest changes. It is important to define what those changes mean for the ecology and conservation of the Mexican spotted owl. In the Southwest, scientists and managers are working together to find ways to reduce the risk of future megafires while also maintaining critical nesting habitat.
