Using climate projections to assess ecosystem vulnerability at scales relevant to managers

Publications Posted on: September 14, 2019
Land managers require information about the ongoing and potential effects of future climate to coordinate responses for ecosystems, species, and human communities at scales that are operationally meaningful. Our study focused on the vulnerability for all upland ecosystem types of Arizona and New Mexico in the southwestern United States.

Assessing the climate change vulnerability of ecosystem types of the Southwestern U.S

Publications Posted on: October 05, 2018
Climate change is challenging scientists and decision-makers to understand the complexities of climate change and to predict the related effects at scales relevant to environmental policy and the management of ecosystem services. Extraordinary change in climate, and the ensuing impacts to ecosystem services, are widely anticipated for the southwestern United States.

Beyond the single species climate envelope: A multifaceted approach to mapping climate change vulnerability

Publications Posted on: October 04, 2016
Federal land management agencies and conservation organizations have begun incorporating climate change vulnerability assessments (CCVAs) as an important component in the management and conservation of landscapes. It is often a challenge to translate that knowledge into management plans and actions, even when research infers species risk.
