Abstract

This volume reports the results of the work assessing the likely vulnerabilities of fish and wildlife and their habitats to climate change. The report addresses the following questions:

  1. How do the SWAP-targeted fish and wildlife habitats rank in terms of their likely comparative vulnerabilities to climate change?
  2. How will the representation of these habitats in Massachusetts be altered by a changing climate?
  3. Which vertebrate Species in Greatest Need of Conservation are likely to be most vulnerable to climate change?
  4. What degree of confidence can be assigned to the above predictions?
