Songs of Adaptation is observing the natural world,
documenting change, and engaging communities to guide
sustainable adaptation for a changing world.
Songs of Adaptation measures stories along biomeridians.
Biomeridians are lines placed on the landscape that connect a range of very different habitats.
For example, a biomeridian is observed along a mountain slope. A mountain might be tropical at the bottom and snow-covered at the peak.
Climate change shifts these habitats.
As temperatures increase, animals and plants begin to move upward on the mountain.
By monitoring multiple habitats, this project provides a way to observe those changes.
