9-second gridded ecological change measures for Tasmania: novel, disappearing and composite


This collection contains AdaptNRM biodiversity change datasets and maps contextualised for Tasmania and surrounding Islands, and specifically: novel ecological environments, disappearing ecological environments, and composite ecological change datasets and maps for amphibians, reptiles, mammals, and vascular plants. The Tasmania extent of the equiv... more

Technical report EP172170: Contextual analysis of ecological change for Tasmania

Attribution

A technical report detailing the methods and basic interpretation and analysis of outputs accompanies this collection (Ware C, Harwood T, Ferrier S, Williams KJ (2016) Contextual analysis of ecological change for Tasmania. A technical report prepared for NRM North Tasmania and partners. CSIRO Land and Water, Canberra, Australia). This technical report can also be accessed through this collection. Methods are broadly outlined in the AdaptNRM Guide “Implications of Climate Change for Biodiversity: a community-level modelling approach”, available online at: www.adaptnrm.org; see link via related materials). GDM Model: GENERALISED DISSIMILARITY MODEL of compositional turnover in each biological group for continental Australia at 9 second resolution is described in separate collections – see link via related materials: AMP_V2_R2; REP_V2_R3; MAM_V1_R2; VAS_V5_R11. These models use best-available biological data extracted from the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) in 2013, and spatial environmental predictor data compiled at 9 second resolution. GDM-scaled environmental grids were used as the basis for pairwise cell comparisons across space and time using the highly parallel bespoke CSIRO Muru software to derive the metrics, running on a LINUX high-performance-computing cluster. More detail of the calculations and methods are given in the technical report appendices. Climate data (see AdaptNRM modules for details). Models were built and projected using: a) 9-second gridded climatology for continental Australia 1976-2005 using ANUCLIM v6.1 software for the 1990-centred baseline: Summary variables with elevation and radiative adjustment. b) 9-second gridded climatology for continental Australia 2036-2065 CanESM2 RCP 8.5 or MIROC5 RCP 8.5 (CMIP5): Summary variables with elevation and radiative adjustment.


This work was commissioned through NRM North (Tasmania) in partnership with NRM South and has been supported by funding through the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme and Planning for Climate Change Fund. Materials produced by this project aim to further the availability of regionally-relevant, high quality climate change impacts information to support biodiversity planning and management. The project partners would also like to acknowledge the support of members of the Healthy Landscapes Group and look forward to further collaboration in the use of the materials produced from this project.

About this Project

Customised AdaptNRM biodiversity impact datasets for Tasmania


CSIRO has developed a suite of national-scale biodiversity change datasets using community-level modelling to support climate adaptation planning by Natural Resource Management groups. These datasets have been published in two ‘AdaptNRM’ modules with explanatory guides (www.adaptnrm.org). The datasets were developed to show change in a national con... more

Ecological Change Modelling


This activity employed state-of-the-art techniques for community-level modelling integrating best-available existing biological and environmental data to map patterns of spatial turnover in terrestrial species composition (using generalised dissimilarity models) for a wide range of biological groups - vertebrates, invertebrates and vascular plants.... more
