How decision support tools that reflect climate change impacts and adaptation strategies for biodiversity and ecosystem services can fit into climate change adaptation planning.
A communication strategy intended to guide creation of materials that support local decision-makers to embrace a resilience-based approach to climate change adaptation.
A review of techniques for downscaling climate data for climate change adaptation action planning, including examples of spatial (traditional) and narrative downscaling.
Projections of ecosystem transitions in response to anticipated climate change in Alberta, including detailed maps of projected climate change and ecosystem shifts, and discussion of potential successional trajectories.
A review of southern Alberta municipal policies to identify the range of opportunities available to local governments to address climate change adaptation using existing municipal plans and policies.
Projected changes in the distribution and abundance of 84 Alberta-breeding songbirds in response to projected changes in climate, revealing the potential for dramatic northward shifts in suitable climates many of these species over the next century.
Summary of 2012 field research assessing the use of assisted migration as a potential tool for conserving dispersal-limited plant species, using two model species: northern blazing star and long-leaved bluets.
