Proposal Title: 

Understanding impacts of climate change on ecology and habitats of waterfowl, shorebirds, and other waterbirds: Guidance for the California LCC and other wetland habitat conservation programs in the Pacific Flyway

Project Summary: 

This project will develop landscape change scenarios based upon water availability and precipitation and temperature patterns projected from downscaled models and investigate impacts of these changes on habitats and ecology of waterfowl, shorebirds, and other waterbirds in the Central Valley. The goal of this work is to work with the Central Valley Joint Venture to adapt the scenario modeling project results and modeling tool so they can be used to incorporate climate, urbanization, and water supply management impacts on waterbird habitats into its conservation planning.
