Species Distribution Modeling and Conservation Planning Workshop

In September of 2013 the CA LCC partnered with UC Davis Information Center for the Environment and Point Blue Conservation Science to offer a workshop on systematic conservation planning (see the CA LCC project description). The aim of the workshop was to present the state of the science for using spatial decision support tools to inform the conservation of plants and animals in the context of climate adaptation planning.

Presented here are the materials from the workshop, including reading lists, slide presentations, and lab exercises. These materials are free to use with attribution to the authors.
