To provide practical guidance for conducting climate change analyses for biological resources, this guide replicates analyses developed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s Nevada State Office and NatureServe. The analyses derive from a pilot project the partners conducted in a 25 million-acre transition area south from the Central Basin and Range ecoregion into the Mojave Basin and Range ecoregion that tests and informs the Yale Mapping Framework.
