Jonathan Pauli and Benjamin Zuckerberg, both assistant professors in the Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology, appear in a recent video explaining the subnivium — habitat between the ground and winter snow cover that is being affected by climate change. The video explains their research in this area and also highlights a win-win collaboration they’ve developed with Operation Fresh Start to help build the automated “micro-greenhouses” needed for this project.

The video is posted online here.
