38. - Refine CCSP data to describe climate effects on wildlife populations and habitats

Text from the Recreational Hunting and Wildlife Conservation Plan, 2008, Page 39

The CCSP defines, measures, and models climate at large geographical scales too big to relate to the smaller-area concerns of wildlife managers. Closing this gap in analytical scale and several other ideas may be useful.

Assessment of Status: Partially Complete

While the US Climate Change Science Program (CCSP) appears to no longer be in existence, the National Fish, Wildlife and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy appears to have filled the niche in the CCSP's absence. In addition, the US Fish and Wildlife Service is addressing smaller scale impacts via Landscape Conservation Cooperatives. Finally, the National Park Service is also analyzing climate impacts to park lands.
