Hopping Ahead of Climate Change: Snowshoe Hares, Science, and Survival

Fall colors

The Mills lab has been excited to collaborate with prolific, award-winning Missoula writer Sneed B. Collard III on his latest book "Hopping Ahead of Climate Change: Snowshoe Hares, Science, and Survival."  

In this book, Collard brings environmental science and climate change to young people ages 10 to 16 with this look at how the changing climate in Montana and the region affects the lives of snowshoe hares. Grounding his story in the work of  Dr. Mills and his reserarch group, Collard explains that early snow melt catches hares still clad in seasonal white against a brown background. Will they adapt with time?
