This dataset is a series of digital map-posters accompanying the AdaptNRM Guide: Implications of Climate Change for Biodiversity: a community-level modelling approach.
These represent supporting mat... moreerials and information about the community-level biodiversity models applied to climate change. Map posters are organised by four biological groups (vascular plants, mammals, reptiles and amphibians), two climate change scenario (1990-2050 MIROC5 and CanESM2 for RCP8.5), and six measures of change in biodiversity.
The map-posters present the nationally consistent data at locally relevant resolutions in eight parts – representing broad groupings of NRM regions based on the cluster boundaries for the NRM fund (http://www.climatechange.gov.au/reducing-carbon/land-sector-measures/nrm-fund/stream-2) and also Nationally.
Map-posters are provided in PNG image format at moderate resolution (300dpi) to suit A0 printing as well as in PDF format to suit initial printing. The posters were designed to meet A0 print size and digital viewing resolution. An additional set in PDF image format has been created for ease of download for initial exploration and printing on A3 paper. Some text elements and map features may be fuzzy at this lower resolution.
Each map-poster contains four dataset images coloured using standard legends encompassing the potential range in ecological similarity (from 0 to 1), even if that range is not represented in the dataset itself or across the map extent.
Each map series is provided in two parts: part 1 shows the two climate scenarios for vascular plants and mammals and part 2 shows reptiles and amphibians. Eight cluster maps for each series have a different colour theme and map extent. A national series is also provided. Annotation briefly outlines the topics presented in the Guide so that each poster stands alone for quick reference.

NRM National Project - AdaptNRM Biodiversity Module - Published 12 Jan 2015
This is the high resolution version of the AdaptNRM Guide “Implications of Climate Change for Biodiversity: a community-level modelling approach” accompanies the digital datasets and maps. This versio... moren is the same as the web-version (lower resolution) available online at www.AdaptNRM.org.
This AdaptNRM Module introduces a series of new measures based on ecological similarity to assess the potential for change in biodiversity under climate change at scales relevant to planning. It is intended to support assessment and lead into strategic planning in NRM. In addition to this Guide, the Module includes a series of maps in poster format and data layers. Links to the datasets and maps are given in “related materials”, below.
This Guide explains how to interpret and use this information, rather than focusing on outcomes for any specific biological group, a likely future climate, or on how global human behaviour may be expressed though a particular emission scenario.
In this Guide, we:
1. introduce a new approach to modelling/mapping change in biodiversity under climate change developed by CSIRO,
2. demonstrate the types of data, show how these can be viewed at national, regional and local scales, and explain their interpretation,
3. provide examples of how this information can be used in planning, with a particular focus on assessment and the core adaptation challenges outlined in The NRM Adaptation Checklist.
