Global Warming Report: Less Winter in the West? By Dan Whipple. New West.
Whipple doesn’t talk about the effect this will have on wildlife. I think it may allow for more winter range for wildlife, with some notable expections such as Yellowstone Park where it will result in wet snow and ice that leaves elk unable to paw through to the grass underneath.
The changing climate may reduce summer range.
