Climate Change Adaptation Plan for Australian Birds
by Stephen T. Garnett and Donald C. Franklin


Overview - This is the first climate change adaptation plan produced for a national faunal group anywhere in the world. It outlines the nature of threats related to climate change for the Australian bird taxa most likely to be affected by climate change, and provides recommendations on what might be done to assist them and an approximate cost of doing so. It also features an analysis of how climate change will affect all Australian birds, explains why some species are likely to be more exposed or sensitive to it than others, and explores the theory and practice of conservation management under the realities of a changing climate.

Species profiles include maps showing current core habitat and modelled climatic suitability based on historical records, as well as maps showing projected climatic suitability in 2085 in relation to current core habitat.

Climate Change Adaptation Plan for Australian Birds is an important reference for policy makers, conservation scientists, land managers, climate change adaptation biologists, as well as bird watchers and advocacy groups.


KEY FEATURES:
-The first climate change adaptation plan produced for a national faunal group anywhere in the world
- A list of climate change sensitive taxa justified by transparent metrics
- Outlines the nature of threats related to climate change for the Australian bird taxa most likely to be affected by climate change
- Maps showing current core habitat and modeled climatic suitability based on historical records, as well as maps showing projected climatic suitability in 2085 in relation to current core habitat
