New Paper by VALE Researcher Brooke Rose Published in *Global Ecology and Biogeography*

Brooke Rose, PhD candidate working with Janet Franklin in the VALE group, published the first chapter of her dissertation in the high-ranking journal Global Ecology and Biogeography, entitled “Rarity, geography, and plant exposure to global change in the California Floristic Province.”

Based on modelling forecasts for over 100 plant species, she found that with restricted range sizes and low topographic heterogeneity were predicted to be the most exposed to climate change, while species at low elevations were the most exposed to habitat loss via land use change predicted for the 21st century.
