Focal Species Models

Note: All species have been updated using version 5 data (March 2020) for the current timestep (2020). Results from the previous version (v. 3) include future runs for 2080. Documentation is the same for both versions, as only underlying data have changed. We supply both versions of the data. If you’re interested in only the models for 2020, use v. 5. If you want projections using future climate and urban growth, use v. 3.

Version 5 (March 2020): The focal species products represent the output of our focal species assessment (see Species document for details). For each species we include tw0 products: the 2020 climate niche index (speciesCN2020) and the 2020 composite landscape capability index (speciesLC2010). Note, the species models use a version of the DSLland raster (DSL_subsysland, see ancillary products) that contains a finer thematic resolution, in which some ecosystems are further classified into subsystems, and in which headwater creeks are not included.

Version 3 (October 2018): The focal species products represent the output of our focal species assessment (see Species document for details). For each species we include several different products, including the 2010 climate niche index (speciesCN2010), 2010 composite landscape capability index (speciesLC2010), 2080 climate niche index (speciesCN2080), 2080 composite landscape capability index (speciesLC2080), 2080 climate response index (speciesCR2080), 2080 climate zones shapefile (speciesCZ2080), 2080 habitat response index (speciesHR2080), and 2080 climate refugia index (speciesCRefugia2080). All 2080 products are for a baseline 70-year (2010-2080) climate change and urban growth scenario without additional land protection. Note, the species models use a version of the DSLland raster (DSL_subsysland, see ancillary products) that contains a finer thematic resolution, in which some ecosystems are further classified into subsystems, and in which headwater creeks are not included.
