Session 2D Republic of Guatemala

Aaron Hargis, Colorado State University
Angie Casini-Ropa, Colorado State University
Arielle Collier, Colorado State University
Gabby Hagewiesche, Colorado State University

1:05 PM - 1:01 PM

Due to Guatemala’s natural susceptibility to extreme weather events and land use change, the people and ecosystems of this country are especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change. This poster will examine Sustainable Development Goals related to land use changes, industry, innovation, infrastructure, consumption and production, and climate action through the lens of our ecological indicator, the endangered Yucatán black howler monkey. We aim to shed light on the drivers and impacts of black howler monkeys as they relate to Guatemala's Nationally Determined Contributions.

Session 2D Post-Fire Trail Assessment of Cameron Peak and East Troublesome Fires

Elizabeth Madura, Colorado State University
Julia Ledford, Colorado State University
Laura Macklin, Colorado State University
Alexander Burks, Colorado State University

1:15 PM - 1:24 PM

The Cameron Peak Fire which occurred from August to December 2020 in Colorado, U.S affected many of Northern Colorado's trails systems. Through GIS analysis we are able to determine trails most affected by the fire and at need for restoration. These results will be given to Wildlands Restoration Volunteers in order to complete future restoration. Additional analysis occurred with the East Troublesome Fire to provide additional resources to determine restoration for Wildlands Restoration Volunteer.

Session 2D Floristic composition and diversity of the arboreal vegetation of a post-burn subxerophylous formation in the Chanchamayo valley

Sonia Palacios Ramos, Universidad Nacional Agraria La Molina

1:25 PM - 1:34 PM

During the last years, fires in the tropical forests in central Peru have been increasing, causing effects on the vegetation. Over time, these fire-affected areas have been regenerating. However, at present, information on the floristic composition and biodiversity is still scarce. In the present study, the floristic composition and diversity of the arboreal vegetation of a subxerophilous forest in the Chanchamayo valley were evaluated, 20 months after having been disturbed by burns of anthropogenic origin.

Session 2D CODEX: A Spatial Data Reference Program for Conservation Planning

Tara Atwood, Colorado State University
Desmond Evans, Colorado State University
Clarissa Koch, Colorado State University
Reynold Liu, Colorado State University

1:35 PM - 1:44 PM

Colorado Natural Heritage Program (CNHP) is launching Colorado Conservation Data Explorer (CODEX), an interactive web-mapping service that aims to summarize sensitive species data, aid in conservation and recreational planning, and allow users to submit their own project areas for review. CODEX has compiled spatial natural resource data from a variety of trusted sources in an easily accessible format. Our Story Map seeks to emphasize the potential applications of CODEX to a broad audience, including nonprofit organizations, consultants, governmental agencies, and citizen scientists. This Story Map will act as a valuable marketing and outreach tool for communicating the numerous mapping features of CODEX.

Session 2D Climate Change: Importance of the study of the seawater temperature of Paita and its impacts in the northern coast of Peru in 2017

Jefferson Stefan Llacsahuanga Pusma, Universidad de Piura

1:45 PM - 1:54 PM

The presentation shows the importance of study seawater for can determine a possible phenomenon of climate change how was "The child coast" in 2017 Piura Peru. Also, the impact that it had in different sectors. It has a relation with climate action because the research allows knows what impacts will be, based on previous figures.
