Iowa Wildlife Action Plan - Securing a Future for Fish and Wildlife: A Conservation Legacy for Iowans

2015

First approved in 2006, the Iowa Wildlife Action Plan is a 25-year strategy for conservation of all wildlife in Iowa. The 2015 Update provides a comprehensive review and revision to the plan that incorporates the threat of climate change to wildlife and habitat. Appendix 21 is a summary of a climate change vulnerability assessment for Iowa wildlife, that predicted climate vulnerability for over 300 species in the state.

Wildland Fire Resilient Landscapes Program (U.S. DOI)

June 16, 2015

The U. S. Department of the Interior (DOI) is directing the Wildland Fire Resilient Landscapes Program. The FY 2015 President's Budget request included funding to establish a new "Resilient Landscapes" activity to improve the integrity and resilience of forests and rangelands by restoring natural vegetation landscapes to specific conditions and maintain fire resiliency. Subsequently, as a pilot initiative, Congress provided $10 million in the FY2015 Fuels Management program to fund resilient landscape activities.

California LCC Climate-Smart Conservation Funding

June 2015

The California Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) Steering Committee has approved 2015 funding for three "climate-smart" ecosystem process projects totaling $360,000. The focus for FY 2015 funding is to support increased understanding of the impacts of changing hydrologic regimes and processes on species, habitats, and ecosystems that will lead to development of Climate-Smart Conservation actions by natural resource managers.

Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment for the North-central California Coast and Ocean

May 2015

From the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), this vulnerability assessment is a science-based effort to identify how and why focal resources - including habitats, species, and ecosystem services - across the North-central California coast and ocean region are likely to be affected by future climate conditions.

Creating and Maintaining Resilient Forests in Vermont: Adapting Forests to Climate Change

May 2015

The Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation assessed the impacts of climate change on forests throughout the state, and developed the state’s first guide to forest adaptation. The report provides forest practitioners with a comprehensive review of adaptation strategies for current and projected climate change, as well as many policy-level strategies have been included in recognition of the connections between statewide policy and forest management.

Central Appalachians Forest Ecosystem Vulnerability Assessment and Synthesis: A Report from the Central Appalachians Climate Change Response Framework Project

February 2015

Led by the U. S. Forest Service (USFS)’s Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science, this assessment evaluates the climate change vulnerability of forested ecosystems covering 18. 9 million acres in the Central Appalachian Broadleaf Forest-Coniferous Forest-Meadow and Eastern Broadleaf Forest Provinces of Ohio, West Virginia, and Maryland. Designed to be a resource for forest managers, the report summarizes the current state of forests in the region including threats and management trends, projected climate impacts, and the results of a climate vulnerability assessment of local tree species and forest ecosystems.

System for Assessing Vulnerability of Species (SAVS) Climate Change Tool

2011

Ecologists and biologists from the USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS) developed a System for Assessing Vulnerability of Species (SAVS) to climate change as a tool for natural resource and wildlife managers to quantify the impacts of expected climate change on terrestrial vertebrates and inform species conservation and management planning. The SAVS climate change tool ranks species in the order of their relative vulnerability or resilience based on species data and expected changes in temperature, precipitation, and vegetation.
