Project Summary: 

Wetland heterogeneity along the Southern California coast combined with the variety of infrastructure constraints and other anthropogenic stressors makes it difficult for managers to know which tools to use and how to best apply them to inform restoration and management for their specific circumstance. This project develops a method for managers to assess climate change vulnerabilities at specific wetland locations. Existing models and tools will be coupled with specific archetypes in consideration of major anthropogenic constraints to inform the climate-smart conservation decision making process.
