Projected effects of climate change on the distribution and abundance of North Pacific birds and their habitats - Final Report


We acquired, federated and curated approximately one million new observations to the Avian Knowledge Network. We used these new observations, in addition to millions of existing records, to model the distribution and abundance of 26 species of land birds in the southern portion of the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative (NPLCC) region including CA, OR and WA. The models were based on climate and modeled vegetation. Using the models we created maps of the distribution and abundance of each species for current (late 20th century) conditions and projected the models to future conditions (2070) based on five regional climate models. The bird models were also used to create maps of conservation priorities for all species and [...]
