Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Planning

  • Sensitivity: environmental tolerance or thresholds; dependence/interactions on other species/processes; specialized habitats, disturbance, other stressors
  • Exposure: primary factors (e.g. temperature, precipitation) and secondary factors (e.g. hydrology, sea level rise, vegetation changes) and non-climate stressors (e.g. development, invasive species)
  • Adaptive Capacity: plasticity, dispersal abilities, evolutionary potential, landscape permeability
