Proposal Title: 

Phase 1 (2011): Integrating Science into Decisions: Climate Change/Land Use Change Scenarios and Outreach for Habitat Threat Assessments on California Rangelands.

Phase 2 (2012): Integrated Scenarios and Outreach for Habitat Threat Assessments on California Rangelands: Metrics and Economic Analysis for Decision Support.

Science Delivery (2013): Integrated Scenarios and Outreach for Assessing Threats to Ecosystem Services on California Rangelands: Science Delivery.

Project Summary: 

Climate change and rangeland scientists, ranchers, and land managers have worked together to develop six scenarios to address a primary management question: How can we maintain viable ranchland and their ecosystem services in light of future integrated threats? The scenarios represent alternative futures of climate/land use/hydrological change for the California Rangeland Conservation Coalition focus area (the Central Valley, surrounding foothills, and most of the southern Inner Coast Range of California).
