Climate Sensitivity Database

The Climate Change Sensitivity Database summarizes the inherent sensitivities to climate change of species and habitats of concern throughout the Pacific Northwest, and provides resource managers and decision makers with some of the most basic and most important information about how species and systems will likely respond to climate change.  …

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) …

Species Population Models

We will use spatially explicit population models to simulate the potential impacts of climate change on populations of 12 focal species in the Pacific Northwest. The HexSim (www.hexsim.net) modeling framework allows us to simulate species-specific population dynamics on current and future modeled landscapes. The HexSim model also simulates dispersal events …
