Climate change may bring higher temperatures, variable precipitation, and more frequent and intense storms. These vulnerability assessments provide a broad summary of potential impacts of climate change, and may provide a foundation for adaptation planning in the face of an uncertain future.
Information is presented in two forms:
- General fact sheets covering broad natural community groups
- Technical bulletins for individual natural communities
Methods for the Assessments
Broad Community Group Fact Sheets
Technical Bulletins for Individual Natural Communities
