The Southwest is considered to be one of the most “climate-challenged” landscapes in the United States (Garfin et al. 2013) and the Colorado Plateau will not be exempt from the impacts of a changing climate. Through the 21st century, the Colorado Plateau is projected to experience hotter temperatures, increased aridity and precipitation variability, and more severe droughts (Seager et al. 2007; Garfin et al. 2013; Cook et al. 2015). Projected climate changes will interact with existing land uses, and each species and ecosystem will respond in unique ways.
