Freshwater Habitats: Climate Change Vulnerability and Adaptation Strategies for Northwestern California
This document summarizes climate change vulnerability assessments for freshwater habitats in northwestern California, including rivers, streams, and floodplains; wet meadows and fens; seeps and springs; lakes and ponds; vernal pools; and freshwater marshes; as well as closely-associated species such as frogs, northwestern pond turtle, native mussels, Port-Orford-cedar, and riparian-nesting birds. This document also includes an overview of adaptation strategies and actions that may reduce the climate change vulnerability of these habitats and species.
