Transformation in Rocky Mountain National Park: The Effects of Climate Change and Human Intervention

Transformation in Rocky Mountain National Park: The Effects of Climate Change and Human Intervention

Author - Thomas Gootz

Dr. Thomas Gootz’s latest book, Transformation in Rocky Mountain National Park: Effects of Climate Change and Human Intervention, explores the Park’s geology, history, and ecology and the science behind changes that have been taking place there over time. Based on the latest studies by researchers and scholars, the National Park Service, and independent university and governmental agencies, Gootz guides the reader through the complex interrelationships between and among plants, animals, and people. He also examines the changing climate of the West and the relationship between global climate patterns and local weather events. This includes drought and violent storm events, such as the September 2013 flood that caused severe damage to areas of the Park and much of the Front Range.
A key theme of the book is that decision-making for the health of the flora and fauna in the Park is the responsibility of everyone, including the public, and depends on an understanding of these complex issues. Published by the Estes Park Museum Friends Press
