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.
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.
