Amanda Schwantes is a global change ecologist, interested in how climate change will impact social-ecological systems. Her prior projects include forecasting species range shifts under climate change using joint species distribution models, developing remote sensing approaches to improve detection of drought-induced tree mortality, and forecasting tree vulnerability to drought stress under climate change.
With ResNet theme 3 she is interested in how we can integrate multiple types of data (e.g., field measurements, census data, social media data, earth observation) to improve monitoring of ecosystem services across Canada. She is also interested in understanding how ecosystem services and their interactions are changing over time and what drivers are causing these changes.
