Summary

Matchett and Fleskes (2018) evaluated availability of wetland and agricultural habitats used by waterbirds overwintering in the Central Valley of California under 17 scenarios of projected climate, urbanization, and water supply management (for more information about scenarios see scenario description and Table 1 in Matchett and Fleskes [2018]). Central Valley waterbird habitats investigated in this research included managed flooded wetlands and croplands and dry cropland habitats. Flooded cropland habitats are defined as winter-flooded rice, winter-flooded corn, and other winter-flooded cropland (in Tulare basin). Flooded wetlands are defined as summer-irrigated seasonal wetland, seasonal wetland that is not summer irrigated, and [...]

Purpose

Project research was funded to evaluate potential future impacts of changes in climate, urbanization, and water supply management on waterbird habitats. These data provide results information that is referenced in a corresponding scientific article composed for publication (in review). References to the data currently pertain to waterbirds, but may be applied to other species that depend on some or all of the same habitats as waterbirds. We anticipate that this data will be used in the future to evaluate potential scenario and habitat impacts on waterbird biology, namely through the use of avian bioenergetics models.
