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.
