Charting Assisted Migration as a Climate Change Adaptation Strategy

Mary Williams, Michigan Technological University, Houghton, MI


Assisted migration, defined as the movement of native plants to facilitate natural range expansion in direct management response to climate change, has gained attention as an adaptation strategy since 2007.
