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.

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.

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.

NOAA Coral Reef Watch

1998

NOAA’s Coral Reef Watch (CRW) is a decision support system providing resource managers, researchers, and other stakeholders with information on coral reef threats, primarily from climate change, to inform preparedness and response decisions. CRW uses remote sensing, modeled, and in situ biogeophysical data to offer near real-time and long-term monitoring, modeling, and reporting of conditions affecting coral reef ecosystems, especially related to coral bleaching. The information provided by the Coral Reef Watch program serves as an early warning system for coral reef changes as well as projected outlooks of coral bleaching heat stress.

Michigan State Wildlife Action Plan (2015-2025)

2015

Michigan’s Wildlife Action Plan identifies the species of greatest conservation need (SGCN) and their habitats in Michigan. A subset of SGCN were prioritized, and the report includes “mini-plans” for the habitats of these focal species - which include critical threats, conservation actions, and the vulnerability to climate change for each species. For 2015-2025, Michigan will focus conservation efforts on these priority SGCN and key habitats with the goals established in this plan.

Ticked Off: America's Outdoor Experience and Climate Change

August 19, 2014

"Ticked Off " was produced by the National Wildlife Federation to detail how certain species of plants or animals are being directly impacted by climate change, as well as how those species in turn affect their ecosystems, and us.
