This project supports a collaborative, multi-stakeholder effort led by the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to develop a largescale vulnerability assessment and associated adaptation strategies for focal resources of the Sierra Nevada. The purpose of this effort is to provide information and tools for Forest Planning and management (e.g., NEPA analyses, Forest Plan revisions, Climate Scorecard) and other natural resource management (e.g., SWAP) and conservation efforts to prepare for climate change impacts in the Sierra Nevada. Specifically, our objectives are to: (1) assess the vulnerability of focal resources to climate change, (2) use spatial analysis and expert input to prioritize conservation areas or actions, and...

This project developed hydrologic projections for diverse wetland habitats (e.g. forest wetlands, wet meadows, small ponds, and riparian wetlands) in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) for the 2020s, 2040s, and 2080s, which can be used to support ecological and landscape-based vulnerability assessments and climate change adaptation planning. The project leveraged existing downscaled climate model scenarios and associated hydrologic datasets developed under separate funding and extended them to examine changes in aquatic habitat.Products developed in this research include new hydroclimatic datasets for assessing changes in the hydroperiod of PNW wetlands. These products are useful to land managers in forecasting ecosystem...

The North Pacific Forest Landscape Corridor and Connectivity Project utilized a landscape connectivity simulator (UNICOR) and a genetic simulation program (CDPOP) to model the functional (dispersal and genetic) connectivity in the North Pacific Landscape. The outputs from these programs indicated areas with high potential for landscape and genetic isolation and low probability of dispersal and colonization. In addition, this project was designed to provide spatially-explicit predictions of current and potential future patterns of fragmentation, prioritization of keystone corridors for protection and enhancement, and identification of places that may require habitat restoration or assisted migration to maintain viability....

The foundation for USGS WLCI science and technical assistance: (1) identify the key drivers of change; (2) identify the condition and distribution of key wildlife species, habitat, and species’ habitat requirements; (3) evaluate wildlife and livestock responses to development; (4) identify the most effective and needed restoration, reclamation, and mitigation activities, as well as locations where conservation benefits may be maximized; (5) develop an integrated inventory and monitoring strategy; and (6) develop a data clearinghouse and information-management framework.
Work Accomplished in FY2009 and Findings Eight Landsat- and eight AWiFS-based habitat-component models were completed for the WLCI area, including estimates of cover percentage for shrub, herbs, litter, sagebrush, big 48 sagebrush, Wyoming sagebrush, and bare ground, and for shrub height. According to an independent accuracy assessment, primary root mean square error (RMSE) values for habitat components based on QuickBird (2.4-m resolution) ranged from 4.90 to 10.16; those based on Landsat (30-m resolution) ranged from 6.04 to 15.85; and those based on AWiFS (56-m resolution) ranged from 6.97 to 16.14. The models improved the state-wide characterization of categorical landcover classes by 8 percent over the National...
