Ecosystem greenspots: Identifying potential drought, fire, and climate-change micro-refuges

Mackey, Brendan; Berry, Sandra Lee; Hugh, Sonia; Ferrier, Simon; Harwood, Thomas D.; Williams, Kristen J.

Description

In response to climate change and other threatening processes there is renewed interest in the role of refugia and refuges. In bioregions that experience drought and fire, micro-refuges can play a vital role in ensuring the persistence of species. We develop and apply an approach to identifying potential micro-refuges based on a time series of remotely sensed vegetation greenness (fraction of photosynthetically active radiation intercepted by the sunlit canopy; fPAR). The primary data for this...[Show more]
