Mapping Joshua Trees for Climate Change Resilience — New partners

The Joshua Tree Genome project is partnering with Mojave Desert conservation leaders to organize teams of community scientists who will help map and monitor Joshua tree populations. Joshua trees are threatened by ongoing climate and habitat-use changes across the desert — the data collected by community scientist teams will help inform conservation planning by identifying Joshua tree populations that are best situated to benefit from conservation protections.
