Abstract

Protected area managers should aim to help the greatest number of species and habitats that presently occur within their parks to adapt and persist in the face of climate change, and ensure that the novel ecosystems that emerge are diverse and resilient. A practical and cost-effective approach to achieve these goals is to focus management efforts on habitat corridors along natural environmental gradients (that is, adaptation corridors embedded within larger natural landscapes) and keystone habitats that provide critical resources within existing protected areas.
