Summary

These datasets depict three zones of uncertainty in the predicted future distribution of 28 representative species based on climate suitability, given the projected climate in 2080 (averaged across RPC 4.5 and 8.5 climate scenarios). The “Zone of Persistence” represents those areas where the species is expected to continue to occur through 2080. The “Zone of Contraction” represents those areas that are currently suitable from a climate perspective but where the 2080 climate is projected to be no longer suitable. The “Zone of Expansion” represents those areas where current climate is unsuitable but future climate is projected to become suitable by 2080. Compared to the Zone of Persistence, uncertainty is higher as to whether the species [...]

Purpose

This dataset is a depiction of three zones of uncertainty in the predicted future distribution of this species based on climate suitability, given the projected climate in 2080 (averaged across RPC 4.5 and 8.5 climate scenarios). The “Zone of Persistence” represents those areas where the species is expected to continue to occur through 2080. The “Zone of Contraction” represents those areas that are currently suitable from a climate perspective but where the 2080 climate is projected to be no longer suitable. The “Zone of Expansion” represents those areas where current climate is unsuitable but future climate is projected to become suitable by 2080. Compared to the Zone of Persistence, uncertainty is higher as to whether the species will occur in the Zones of Contraction or Expansion in 2080.
