Creating Adaptation Strategies for Parks Using Enduring Features: Data on sensitivity and adaptive capacity was incorporated at the landscape scale using remote sensing data. But, the assessment needs ground-truthing, using the substantial fine scale data available from NCRN monitoring plots. This will provide park managers with explicitly-defined sensitivity to stressors by assessing ecological integrity, and with improved understanding of existing adaptive capacity measures that incorporate topographic complexity, local connectivity and forest patch size. The NCRN data will improve the modeling of forest response to larger landscape and regional scale exposures from stressors. We will use a spatial framework that assesses the systems ecological integrity over time and include other system stressors. The framework will use plot data from the parks' vegetation classification and maps (113 plant communities, grouped into 24 ecological systems) and also 15 years of NCRN and other eastern I&M Networks monitoring data.
