    Description

    Military installation training lands must be managed to support species at risk as well as to be effective training environments for soldiers. Forecasts from various global climate change models suggest that the habitats associated with some military training installations will face pressures that induce biome-shifts, invasive species, loss of habitat, and changes in training opportunities. This study combined worldwide habitat forecast data with a current habitat map to identify major installations that appear to be most and least at-risk for habitat change.
