Convention on Biological Diversity Climate Change Adaptation Database

From the Convention on Biological Diversity, this database provides a web-based tool for guidance on the integration of biodiversity within adaptation planning. The website includes vulnerability studies, threat studies, assessment tools, case studies, and monitoring tools related to adaptation planning for ecosystems. A table of adaptation options is provided that applies a ranking system of "adverse" to "neutral" to "positive" in terms of the impact of adaptation activities on ecosystems and the services they provide.

Modeling Bird Distribution Responses to Climate Change: A mapping tool to assist land managers and scientists in California

This site allows users to see current and future maps of bird species distributions, vegetation, or climate variables.   Using sophisticated species distribution modeling techniques, this site presents current and potential futures for bird communities in California based on different climate model outputs. Future bird distributions are based on regional climate model projections for the periods 2038-2070 (IPCC Scenario A2) and 2080-2099 (IPCC Scenario A1B). Models were developed for over 80 California Partners in Flight (CalPIF) focal species, of which 60 non-special-status species are represented in this tool.
