Measures for helping biodiversity adapt

We introduce new measures to inform the design of adaptation options. Using the community-level modelling approach introduced in the Implications for Biodiversity module, we applied additional calculations and modes of comparison between baseline and future climates to produce four specific measures that aim to inform the design or exploration of particular adaptation options.

To learn about these measures choose from the menu on the right-hand side. You will find an explanation of each measure and example outputs presenting:

  • a national context
  • a regional focus

The maps and data related to these measures are available through the CSIRO Data Access Portal.

Suggestions for using this information in planning processes can be found under the Planning examples section.
