Habitat Suitability Models
Models predicting recent historical and future climate suitability for over 350 terrestrial animal species, 11 tree species, and 100 ecosystems are being developed for the Pacific Northwest Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment. These models are being developed using a correlative statistical approach, and will predict climate suitability for recent historical (1961-1990) and future (2070-2099) time periods. The suitability maps will soon be made available for downloading in an ArcGIS raster file format. For more information, please contact Jesse Langdon, or Michael Case.
