Slide 2

Applying environmental change science Models Uncertainty Spatial scale

Slide 3

Approach: Adapt CAP structure Selecting preservation targets Defining qualities & markers of reasonability How will current dangers be adjusted by CC? What novel dangers will emerge because of CC? What methods can address present and novel dangers?

Slide 4

Targets and Conservation Area Where is the species or biological system in connection to its dissemination? Consider availability What natural slopes influence it? b. How very much associated is suitable environment over the scene? c. How does the level of network contrast with the dispersal abilities of the objectives?

Slide 5

KEAs and Threats Consider existing and novel dangers How will novel CC dangers influence each environmental property of the species or biological system being referred to? 2. By what means will CC dangers worsen existing dangers? 3. Concentrate on CC dangers that are moderately entrenched

Slide 6

Examples NOVEL THREAT EXISTING THREAT Wetland complex Estuarine biological system Hydrologic administration: stream from liquefying snowpack Extent and circulation of salt bog Decline in stream Loss of salt swamp Reduced snowpack; diminished late season base streams Agricultural water withdrawals, dams & redirections Sea level ascent

Slide 7

Strategies Threat-based : Energy, transportation, cap&trade Target-based: improve versatility Photo credit: An Inconvenient Truth, © 2006, Paramount Pictures

Slide 8

Objectives and Strategies CC procedures can be proactive Focus on species and environments amidst their reach Consider techniques to explicitly address CC dangers Elevate methods that address CC dangers notwithstanding existing dangers Elevate methodologies that deliver CC dangers to various targets MONITOR methodology adequacy Communicate effects of environmental change to accomplices and associates

Slide 9

Impact of environmental change: Increased barometrical nursery gas fixations Strategy: Forest preservation and rebuilding

Slide 10

Impact of environmental change: Species reaches move altitudinally and latitudinally Strategy: Identify environmental change refugia and concentrate administration exertion and new acquisitions on portfolio destinations in refugia

Slide 11

Impact of environmental change: Habitat fracture forestalls dispersal to new natural surroundings Strategy: Establish passageways to connection ebb and flow territory to anticipated new living spaces

Slide 12

Impact of environmental change: Sea level ascent Strategy: Vegetate waterfront bogs as ocean level ascents and bogs move inland

Slide 13

Impact of environmental change: Decreased late season baseflow Strategy: Restore and secure key freshwater wetlands, including riparian ranges, to store water for late season streams

Slide 14

Conclusions Look at Conservation Planning through a Climate Change lens. Expect the effects of environmental change on portfolio species and biological communities. Actualize methodologies to moderate those effects and expand target versatility
