Summary

This data set includes the relative production scenarios for sideoats grama [1.13(Temp) + 0.41(Precip) - 0.004(Precip)^2- 0.07(Sand) - 12.3]; this is the model from Epstein, et al. (1998). Soil texture (percent by weight) came from the Earth Systems Science Center (2008) which provided processed soils data from NRCS (gSSURGO), mean annual temperature (Celsius) and/or mean annual precipitation (millimeters) came from contemporary (1981 - 2010) estimates (Maurer et al. 2002) or a GCM. Global Climate Models (GCM) providing scenarios included: warmer-wetter scenario (CESM1-BGC, RCP4.5, Neale et al., 2010), warmer drier scenario (GISS-E2-R, RCP4.5, Schmidt, 2014), hotter-wetter scenario (Miroc-ESM, RCP8.5, Watanabe et al., 2011), and hotter-drier [...]

Purpose

To address this priority information need for multiple stakeholders, we evaluated the potential vulnerability of four grassland communities (shortgrass, mixed-grass, and tallgrass prairies, and semiarid grasslands) using four climate change scenarios (representing hotter-drier, hotter-wetter, warmer-drier, and warmer-wetter conditions, relative to contemporary conditions) in the GPLCC region. The climate scenarios are not predictions of the future, but demonstrate potential conditions based on complicated global climate models. As such, the projections of relative production and potential change in relative production should be interpreted similarly, as model results that provide insights to potential future conditions, and not as predictions of the future.
