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.


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]
