National Climate Change & Wildlife Science Center
  • A partnership to sustain fish & wildlife communities
  • Forecasts fish & wildlife change through:
    • Down-scaled climate models and derivative products
    • Integration with ecological & habitat models
    • Defining population and habitat responses at appropriate scales
    • Developing response options in an adaptive monitoring framework
  • Joint decision-making with Federal, State and NGO communities
  • National and regional focus on adaptation/impacts

regional climate science hubs
Regional Climate Science Hubs

Partnerships are key

  • Cover the Nation (7or 8)
  • Science-based
  • University hosted
  • Ecological & political

boundaries

  • Self-generating
    • Covering multiple AAP’s/LCC’s
regional climate science hubs9
Regional Climate Science Hubs
  • Downscaled climate information – linked with ecological/biological response models at scales that help managers develop effective adaptive management strategies
  • Regional response modeling and forecasting of fish and wildlife population and habitat changein response to climate change
  • Derivative products - that link biological and ecological response variables with physical forcing factors (e.g. temperature and precipitation)
  • Modeling possible response scenarios for managers to use in an adaptive management framework
adaptive application partnerships
Adaptive Application Partnerships
  • Four to six per Hub
  • Landscape/geography-based
  • Partnership-led
  • Regional Climate Science Hub Outputs:
    • Combination of expression w/other landscape drivers
    • Geographic expression of ecological & habitat nodes from RCSH’s at management scales
    • Priority management goals and time frames
adaptive application partnerships11
