Vulnerability: Information and Examples | The Riverscape Analysis Project
2 CCVAs should account for the three components of vulnerability (IPCC 2007): exposure (the magnitude or risk of physical changes in climate conditions); sensitivity (the likelihood of adverse effects to an organism or system given climate changes; can be considered akin to dose-response); and adaptive capacity (the intrinsic ability for an organism or system to reduce its sensitivity by successful response to changing climate [e.g., adaptive responses or range shifts]). Toward More Robust CCVAs. The pur...
What is Landscape Genetics? | The Riverscape Analysis Project
Samples of individuals across environmental gradients. To study both neutral and adaptive patterns and processes (e.g., infer adaptive capacity, adaptive differentiation and gene flow). What does landscape genetics/genomics have to offer vulnerability assessments? Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment (CCVA). Tools and resources for assessing salmonid climate change vulnerability. Tools and resources for analyzing the influence of physical habitat factors on genetic diversity and connectivity.
