Dr. Molly Cross is an ecologist whose research focuses on ecosystem responses to climate change and biodiversity loss. In 2007, Molly joined the Wildlife Conservation Society's North America Program to examine the impacts of climate change on wildlife conservation efforts. The primary goal of the project is to bring together experts in the fields of climate change, ecology, conservation planning and land management to translate broad-brush climate change adaptation strategies into on-the-ground conservation actions at various landscapes in the Intermountain West of North America. Molly conducted her Ph.D. research at the University of California-Berkeley on ecosystem responses to climate warming-induced plant species loss in a sub-alpine meadow in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
