Dataset created by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to identify major global ecofloristic zones. It was used by the IPCC to categorize carbon stock estimates. Each of the 20 ecoregions are characterized by their temperature regime (tropical, subtropical, temperate, boreal, and polar) and their vegetation type (humid forest, dry forest, moist deciduous forest, shrubland, steppe, desert, etc.).

The USGS’s FORE-SCE model was used to produce land-use and land-cover (LULC) projections for the conterminous United States. The projections were originally created as part of the "LandCarbon" project, an effort to understand biological carbon sequestration potential in the United States. However, the projections are being used for a wide variety of purposes, including analyses of the effects of landscape change on biodiversity, water quality, and regional weather and climate. The year 1992 served as the baseline for the landscape modeling. The 1992 to 2005 period was considered the historical baseline, with datasets such as the National Land Cover Database (NLCD), USGS Land Cover Trends, and US Department of Agriculture's...

Daily downscaled data for the Climate Model simulations conducted for the IPCC Fourth Assessment The Climate Impacts Group has analyzed the climate response for the Pacific Northwest simulated by several climate models. These simulations were prepared by climate modeling centers worldwide for the Fourth IPCC Assessement. For consistency with prior work, we include the current versions of models used previously: Hadcm3, Echam5, CCSM3, and PCM1 (CCSM3 is the successor to both the NCAR CSM and DOE PCM). To these we added five additional models to better represent the range of models participating in AR4. These are: CNRM_CM3, CSIRO_MK3 Miroc_3.2, IPSL_CM4, CGCM_3.1, and GISS_ER. Summary statistics for these models...

Species distribution models often use climate data to assess contemporary and/or future ranges for animal or plant species. Land use and land cover (LULC) data are important predictor variables for determining species range, yet are rarely used when modeling future distributions. In this study, maximum entropy modeling was used to construct species distribution maps for 50 North American bird species to determine relative contributions of climate and LULC for contemporary (2001) and future (2075) time periods. Results indicate species-specific response to climate and LULC variables; however, both climate and LULC variables clearly are important for modeling both contemporary and potential future species ranges....
The Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO) is a web-based tool that substantively connects planning and science through a report generation service. TACCIMO provides land owners, managers, and planners with access to the best and most current climate change science available.
