Species vulnerability to climate change: impacts on spatial conservation priorities and species representation

Summers, David; Bryan, Brett Anthony; Crossman, N.; Meyer, Wayne S.


Climate change may shrink and/or shift plant species ranges thereby increasing their vulnerability and requiring targeted conservation to facilitate adaptation. We quantified the vulnerability to climate change of plant species based on exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity and assessed the effects of including these components in complementarity-based spatial conservation prioritisation. We modelled the vulnerability of 584 native plant species under three climate change scenarios in an...[Show more]
