Part of the Safeguarding Wildlife from Climate Change Web Conference Series, this webinar explores the approaches most commonly implemented to model the large-scale response of amphibians and reptiles to climate change. Steven Jackson, professor of Botany and director of the Program in Ecology at the University of Wyoming, discusses what conclusions can be drawn from vulnerability assessments and what kinds of data are necessary to execute an assessment. Examples of a vulnerability assessment being conducted in the southeastern United States are used to demonstrate model outputs and applications.
