Systems' Response to Climate Change Projections and Species-distribution Models in the Caribbean

Duration

September 2011 - September 2013

Narrative

This project will use downscale climate data to: 1) model climate-change related effects on water quantity and water temperature across Puerto Rico, and 2) model vegetation dynamics to project future land covers. These data will be used to assess the potential impacts of model projections on predicted distributions of flora and fauna using as benchmark PR Gap Analysis Program databases.
