Overview: 

The California Avian Data Center have developed a tool to model how different bird species may respond to climate change. They use two climate models and multi-source bird data to predict current and future species distributions for California terrestrial breeding bird species. Currently, they have nearly 200 species available for viewing. These species represent 7 major habitat types found within California including riparian, oak woodland, scrub, conifer, grassland, wetlands, and desert habitat types.

Outputs: 

This mapping tool allows the user to produce maps of present day and future bird distributions, vegetation distribution or climate variables. The spatial data produced by this tool can be downloaded or viewed on screen.
