Spatial domainEastern Pima County
AbstractCC_VULN is the result of an all-lands vulnerability assessment for major upland ecosystems of AZ and NM (Triepke 2016). Based on the anticipated effects of climate and uncharacteristic drought to site potential, the vulnerability of individual plant communities was identified by the level of future climate departure from the climate envelope for given ecosystem types. The CCVA was an ecosystems approach to predicting vulnerability based on climate projections at the year 2090. Much of the underpinning knowledge and geography of vegetation-climate relationships stems from the Terrestrial Ecological Unit Inventory of the USFS Southwestern Region (USDA Forest Service 1986, Winthers et al. 2005).
