Iowa Code 2009, Title 11, Subtitle 4, Section 473 - Energy Development and Conservation

November 4, 2009

Following a report in December 2008 from the Iowa Climate Change Advisory Council, the Iowa Legislature requested additional information on the ramifications of climate change for the state, and enacted a new bill in 2009 (Sec. 27, Section 473.7, Code 2009 amended) requiring a climate change impacts review to be conducted and reported.

A Framework for Categorizing the Relative Vulnerability of Threatened and Endangered Species to Climate Change (External Review Draft)

November 2009

The framework presented in this report may be used to categorize the relative vulnerability of species to climate change. There are four modules that compose this framework. These modules walk the user through a systematic process for (1) categorizing a species’ baseline vulnerability to extinction or major population reduction, (2) categorizing a species’ vulnerability to future climate change, (3) developing a matrix that provides an overall score of the species’ vulnerability to non-climate and climate change stressors, and (4) qualitatively determining the uncertainty in the estimate of a species’ vulnerability.
