9-second gridded continental Australia revegetation benefit (cleared natural areas) for Vascular Plants 1990:2050 CanESM2 RCP 8.5 (CMIP5) (GDM: VAS_v5_r11)


Benefits of revegetation index for Vascular Plants as a function of land clearing and climate change based on Generalised Dissimilarity Modelling (GDM) of compositional turnover. This metric represents the marginal benefit from a unit increase of vegetation at the site, which is a direct function of the slope of the species area curve at the test ... more

Benefits of revegetation index was calculated using the highly parallel bespoke CSIRO Muru software running on a LINUX high-performance-computing cluster, taking GDM model transformed environmental grids as inputs. The index of revegetation was calculated as the marginal gain from revegetation actions at a cleared location as a function of the area of similar ecological environments More detail of the calculations and methods are given in the document “BiodiversityModellingMethodsSummary.pdf” provided with the data download. GDM Model: Generalised dissimilarity model of compositional turnover in vascular plant species for continental Australia at 9 second resolution using ALA data extracted 27 February 2014 (GDM: VAS_v5_r11) Climate data. Models were built and projected using: a) 9-second gridded climatology for continental Australia 1976-2005: Summary variables with elevation and radiative adjustment b) 9-second gridded climatology for continental Australia 2036-2065 CanESM2 RCP 8.5 (CMIP5): Summary variables with elevation and radiative adjustment Natural Areas Layer (intact to degraded land) Australian Government Department of the Environment (2014) Natural areas of Australia - 100 metre (digital dataset and metadata). Available at http://www.environment.gov.au/metadataexplorer/explorer.jsp and up to date information for Western Australia were provided at 25m Albers projection were reprojected to GDA94, merged and aggregated to a continuous measure of proportion of intact area per grid cell at 9s.

About this Project

1173.3 Strat: WPC Global Prot Area Ass


This project employs macroecological modelling and analysis techniques pioneered by CSIRO to assess present and future representation of terrestrial biodiversity within the world’s protected-area system. The project aims to address four main questions: 1. How adequately does the world’s protected-area system represent current patterns of compositio... more
